In your bag
- Chicken options:
- 2 to 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 10 ounces total)
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 6 ounces each)
- ½ teaspoon ground allspice
- 2 ounces dried apricots

- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 5 ounces organic baby kale or other leafy greens
Despite the name, allspice is not a blend of spices but is the dried berry of the Pimenta dioica tree, native to Jamaica and Central America. It tastes like a mild blend of clove and nutmeg, a flavor you might recognize from jerk seasoning.
Prepare a medium-hot fire in a grill. Set the chicken on the grill directly over the heat and cook, turning occasionally, until lightly charred and cooked through, about 10 minutes.
