Special equipment: 20 (6-inch) bamboo skewers, soaked in water
Cut the chicken into 20 thin strips, about the size of your small finger. Thread onto 1end of each skewer and place into a bowl until marinade is ready. Keep the bamboo handles all on 1 side so as not to touch the marinade when it is added.
In a food processor, place the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.
Pour 1/2 the marinade over the chicken only, trying not to touch the skewers. Make sure to coat the chicken entirely. Let sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Place the remainder of the marinade into a small saucepan and add:
Place over medium heat until thickened and the tomato has broken down, about 30 minutes. Puree, if desired for a smoother consistency. Let cool and serve with the chicken skewers when they are ready.
To finish, place the chicken end of the skewers over a hot, well-oiled grill and cook about 3 minutes per side. Time might vary depending on how hot the grill is or how thick the chicken is. If a grill is not available, you can place under a broiler for about the same time. Serve with the jerk sauce.
