Sweet, ripe nectarines offer a cool counterpoint to this spicy jerk chicken salad. Accompany with Wholesome Cornbread and Beans & Rice.
4 tablespoons  lime juice, divided
1 1/2 tablespoons  dried jerk seasoning
1 tablespoon  steak sauce, such as
4 teaspoons  honey, divided
1 teaspoon  canola oil
1 pound  boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed
3   ripe nectarines, pitted and thickly sliced
2   scallions, chopped
salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
8 cups  torn or shredded romaine lettuce

Ingredient Note:  Jerk seasoning is a dry rub available in the spice section of most supermarkets.
Mix 1 tablespoon lime juice, jerk seasoning, steak sauce, 2 teaspoons honey and oil in a shallow dish. Add chicken and turn to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium-high or preheat broiler.

Stir together nectarines, scallions, remaining 3 tablespoons lime juice and remaining 2 teaspoons honey in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

Oil grill rack or broiler pan. Grill chicken until no longer pink in the center, 3 to 4 minutes per side. (Alternatively, place thighs on broiler pan. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat, 4 to 5 minutes per side). Transfer chicken to a cutting board. Let stand for 5 minutes, then slice diagonally.

Toss romaine with nectarine mixture in a large bowl. Divide among 6 plates and arrange chicken on top. Serve immediately.
