Wow! What a great marinade! I was looking for a tropical tasting marinade for an "Island Party" and instantly fell in love with this one after reading through the ingredients list. I ended up quadrupling it since I had 12 lbs of chicken and it worked out excellent! I cubed my chicken breasts, applied the marinade, and let it sit for about 4 hours, and then skewered them onto bamboo skewers with red bell pepper, fresh pineapple, and red onion. My dear hubby then grilled all of it and my oh my was it fabulous! The chicken was incredibly moist and had sweet spicy flavor. Absolutely delicious recipe... this will definitely be a keeper!

We really enjoyed this recipe. I used chicken breasts and cut into strips, let it marinade for 1/2 a day and found the flavors went right through the chicken. Cooked it on the BBQ and served with a salad. Thanks for posting this fantastic, quick and easy recipe.

I wasn't a fan of the spices used in this.

Marinaded overnight, and the flavor was good but not intense enough. I will make it agian and tweak a bit for my family's tastes.

This was a great marinade for chicken. The spices really stood out and yet you could taste the hint of lime and rum as well. We grilled ours on the foreman and it turned out perfectly cooked. We followed everything to a T except we only used a little over a lb and half of chicken and made the entire marinade.

I grilled mine and while some of the onions, etc. stuck to the grill (I even used Pam for Grilling), it was still very tasty. I coupled it with a spiced grilled corn along with a grilled pineapple for dessert. It took about 7 minutes each side to cook to 160 degrees. Very good recipe, I'll keep it! Thanks EdsGirlAngie.

Threw all the saute ingredients into a small food processor to mince them fine, quickly. Then everything else as posted. Just enough for 2 butterflied cornish hens to marinate. Good stuff. Tempted to try with some minced pineapple added at the end as a variation.

There is nothing else to say except this marinade was absolutely delicious! I marinated chicken breasts for a day and a half that I cut into strips and skewered before grilling. The spices and wet ingredients blend together perfectly and the chicken is juicy, succulent with just the right touch of citrus to work with the slight spiciness. I know I'll make this again and again!

Ahhh, the taste of the Caribbean! This is a delicious marinade - all of the flavors really mix and mingle well, and the taste is fresh, bright, and definitely tropical. We followed the recipe exactly and marinated chicken pieces in this for about 4 hours; the flavor was wonderful throughout. This would be delicious with shrimp or pork strips, too. We'll be using this one a LOT over the summer. Thanks, EdsGirlAngie!
