You could light the grill for Miss Lily’s jerk chicken to-go dinner and have an outdoor Caribbean feast from the vibrant restaurant with locations on West Houston Street and in the East Village. There’s enough food for four in this $70 kit. The marinated spiced chicken needs a reheat and a sear — the oven also works — with a basting of jerk sauce. Rice and beans, cucumber escovitch, grilled corn to heat and smear with jerk mayo, and creamy banana pudding for dessert round out the meal.
