Jerk Chicken Thighs with Pineapple Cilantro Salad

They love jerk chicken wings so I thought I would give this a try with boneless chicken thighs. Since I only use my barbecue for baking bread I cooked the thighs inn cast iron skillet which gave them a nice glaze.  Everyone enjoyed but requested more heat next time.  I would also put the chicken in the marinate for 4 to 6 hours.
