  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill.
  • 2
    Place large sheet of heavy-duty foil or double layer of regular foil on work surface. Rub foil with a little olive oil.
  • 3
    Place chicken in center of foil. Drizzle with olive oil; sprinkle with jerk seasoning. Scatter pineapple wedges around chicken. Pour over rum.
  • 4
    Bring short ends of foil together, and fold twice to seal; fold in sides to seal, leaving room for steam.
  • 5
    Place packets on grill over medium-high heat. Cover grill; cook 20 to 25 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut (at least 165°F), turning chicken once. Cooking time will depend on size of chicken.
  • 6
    Remove from grill; unwrap and top with fresh cilantro and lime wedges.

Expert Tips

  • I find it best to use large, heavy-duty foil.
  • If your chicken is very large, I recommend cutting it into smaller pieces so it will cook evenly.
