    Kree's Note:

    This poultry dish, marinated with lime and white rum, sounds like a taste of the Caribbean! I'm sure the marinade would be great on chicken breasts, too. I found this recipe in a Mix-and-Match Menu cookbook. I haven't tried it yet, but it's posted in response to a request. Prep time includes marinating time.

      Yummy, cornish hens. Made them for dinner guest. Everyone loved them. I forgot to buy a lime so used limeade & orange rind. Worked good. Served with a baby green salad with different fruits, Corn on cob and fresh greens beans out of our garden. Delicious dinner, will be making these again. Thank you Kree.

      This is a great recipe. The cooking aroma alone warrants 5 stars and got my neighbors guests (40 of them) wondering what was going on the other side of the fence! I made this as Kree wrote it, using about half the pepper called for. I served it with ramen noodles mixed with broccoli, and cucumber salad. Very nice dinner, thanks Kree!
