  • 4 green onion tops, chopped 
  • 2 tablespoons blackstrap molasses 
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 4 teaspoons ground allspice 
  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon 
  • 4 teaspoons ground nutmeg 
  • 4 teaspoons ground ginger 
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme or 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves, chopped 
  • 2 teaspoons salt 
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper 
  • 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken leg and/or thigh meat
Pineapple Cilantro Slaw:

Directions

Marinate the chicken: Blend together the vinegar, chiles, red and green onion, molasses, olive oil, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger thyme, salt, and black pepper in a food processor until smooth. Coat the chicken with the marinade and store covered in refrigerator at least 8 hours and up to 3 days. The marinade can be made up to 2 weeks ahead and stored in refrigerator.

Make the pineapple cilantro slaw: Mix together the cabbage, cilantro, red onion, pineapple, carrot, vinegar, and sugar in a bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste and allow the mixture to marinate 3 hours in the refrigerator.

Heat a grill to medium-high heat. Cook the chicken until fully cooked, about 5 minutes per side. Dice the meat and divide it among the buns. Top the sliders with the pineapple cilantro slaw or serve it as a side.
