Spicy Alligator Chicken with Grains of Paradise

4 large chicken breasts
1 tbsp grains of paradise
8 (2-inch-long) dried hot red chillies
2 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tbsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp caraway seeds
1 large lemon, zest only
2 large cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
2 tsp sea salt
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 lemons, halved
1 onion, chopped

Coarsely grind the grains of paradise, chillies, coriander, cumin, and caraway seeds.  In a small bowl combine the spices, lemon zest, garlic, salt and olive oil.  Rub the chicken breasts with the paste and allow to marinate for an hour. 

Heat your grill to high temperature, sear each side of the chicken breast for 2 1/2 minutes.  Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for an additional 15 minutes.

Garnish with freshly squeezed lemon juice, onions and a big glass of ice water.  This bird is HOT!!!
