  • 8 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 2 1/2 pounds)
  • 1 cup light rum or apple juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 large sweet potatoes or yams, cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • Tropical Fruit Salsa:

  • 1 jalapeno chiles, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped red onions
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

Prepare Tropical Fruit Salsa. Place chicken in shallow glass or plastic dish. Mix remaining ingredients except sweet potatoes; pour over chicken. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.

Brush grill rack with vegetable oil. Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Remove chicken from marinade; reserve marinade. Cover and grill chicken 4 to 5 inches from medium heat 10 minutes. Turn chicken; brush with marinade. Add sweet potato slices to grill.
