Very very good. I salted the chicken before putting it in the marinade, and skipped the shallots. The scotch bonnet pepper made this dish unique and delicious. Thank you.

I really liked all the layers of flavor in this marinade and I like that the ingredients are ones I usually always have on hand. This is a keeper and will be made many times this summer for sure! Made for ZWT5.

DH enjoyed this recipe very much tonight- I think he ate 5 pieces or more! I also used a brine before marinating (I am addicted to brines for all poultry and pork.) Few substitutions--I used red wine because I had it on hand and three jalapenos because the store didn't have scotch bonnets. Also used olive oil to saute instead of butter. Very nice flavor- will definitely make this again.
