    1. Combine the onion, brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, thyme, sesame oil, garlic, allspice and habanero in the container of a food processor or blender. Process until smooth. Place the chicken into a large resealable bag, and pour in 3/4 of the mixture. Squeeze out excess air, and seal. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
    2. Preheat your oven's grill.
    3. Remove chicken from bag, and discard marinade. Grill chicken for 10 to 15 minutes, turning once to ensure even cooking. Heat remaining sauce in a small pan, and pour over chicken when serving.


    If you cannot find habaneros, feel free to use Scotch bonnets - they are similar in heat and flavour.
