Ingredients
For the chicken:
1/4 small yellow onion
2 scallions, cut into thirds
1 jalapeño pepper, stemmed, halved, seeds and membrane removed
2 Tbsp fresh orange juice
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp Jamaican jerk seasoning
1 Tbsp expeller-pressed grapeseed or canola oil
1 Tbsp packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 garlic clove
1 tsp salt
3 bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts (about 2 1/2 lb), halved

For the sweet potatoes:
3 medium sweet potatoes, sliced crosswise into 3/4-inch-thick circles
1 Tbsp (15 ml) expeller-pressed grapeseed or canola oil
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
How to make it
To make the chicken: put all the ingredients except the chicken into a food processor and run until puréed to create a marinade. Place chicken and marinade in a shallow dish. Spoon the marinade over and under the skin and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, up to overnight.

Preheat the grill on medium low (about 325°F).

To make the sweet potatoes: Coat the potatoes in oil, salt, and pepper. Coat a sheet of aluminum foil with oil spray, place on the hottest part of the grill and lay the chicken skin side down on the foil. Put the potatoes directly on the grate, over the cooler side of the grill or in a grill basket. Cook for 10 minutes. Rotate the chicken by one-quarter and turn the potatoes. Cook for an additional 10 minutes. Remove potatoes from grill when fork-tender. Turn chicken and cook for 15 to 20 minutes until juices run clear or an instant-read thermometer inserted into the middle reaches 165°F. Allow chicken to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
