To make the marinade: In a food processor with the motor running, drop the garlic, shallot, ginger, and jalapeno through the feed tube and process until they are finely minced. Add the basil and process until finely chopped. Add the remaining marinade ingredients and process until well combined.


Cut the chicken into 6 pieces: 2. breast pieces, 2 legs with thighs, and 2 wings [remove and discard the wing tips]. Cut 3 or 4 slashes, about 1/2 inch deep, into the meatier side of the breast and leg-thigh pieces. Place the chicken pieces in a large, plastic resealable bag, and pour in the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade, place the bag in a bowl, and refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours, or as long as 12 hours, turning the bag occasionally.


Remove the chicken pieces from the bag and discard the marinade. Grill, skin side down, over Indirect Medium heat until fully cooked. The breast and wing pieces will take about 30 minutes. The leg-thigh pieces will take about 40 minutes. During the last 10 minutes of grilling time, move the chicken over Direct Medium heat until well browned all over, turning once. Serve warm.
