Cooked rice
Papaya (optional), peeled and sliced.

In a blender or food processor, combine onions, ginger, allspice, jalapeno chiles, oil, seasoned pepper, salt and garlic. Process until finely chopped. Stir in honey to form a paste. Brush on all sides of chicken. Place a rack in a slow cooker. Place chicken on rack. Cover and cook on Low 4 to 4 1/2 hours or until chicken is tender. Serve with rice.

To crisp the "jerked" coating on the cooked chicken, broil or grill for several minutes or until bubbly.
