- Divide chicken among 2 large resealable plastic bags; set aside.
- In a blender, combine onion, chile peppers, scallions, garlic, lime juice, oil, soy sauce, Sucanat, thyme, allspice, salt, black pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg. Blend into a purée, stopping to scrape down jar as necessary. Transfer 1/4 cup mixture to a small bowl and set aside. Add remaining mixture to bags with chicken, dividing evenly. Squeeze out as much air from bags as possible and seal tightly. Massage bags to evenly distribute marinade throughout and refrigerate for 4 hours, or overnight.
- Meanwhile, whisk yogurt into reserved onion mixture until combined. Cover and refrigerate until needed. (MAKE AHEAD: Sauce can be made up to 1 day in advance.)
- Thirty minutes before cooking, remove chicken and yogurt sauce from refrigerator and set aside at room temperature.
- Heat grill to medium-high and lightly oil grate. Remove chicken from bags, shaking off excess marinade; discard marinade. Grill, turning once, until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a large plate, cover loosely with foil and let rest for 5 minutes. Serve with yogurt sauce and garnish, if desired.
