When I pulled the fruit out of the refrigerator and was about to add the reserved marinate, I begin having my doubts. I thought this part of the recipe was going way out of my comfort zone. What was I doing putting garlic and hot peppers onto fruit!! But let me say, it brings out a nice combination of flavors. The chicken was moist and tender, with a lot of flavor and heat from the haberno that I used. Harvest Bay was the brand of coconut water that I used. This recipe is well worth the time it takes to make. I think you could use 6-8 chicken breasts and not increase the marinade. Just make sure you turn the bag a couple of times while it marinates in the refrigerator. I will make this one again!! Made during * Zaar World Tour 5* 2009 game for team *Genies of Gourmet*

We really enjoyed this healthy chicken recipe. I loved the marinade flavor, although I might cut back a smidge on the allspice next time. I served this over brown rice and had a green salad. It was really yummy. I also love that most of the work can be done on another day, only having to take it out of the freezer later. Thank you!

Perfectly cooked chicken with bold flavor - the lime, thyme and hot sauce mix with the fruit is unique. Love how easy this is to make and healthy too.

I didn't have time to marinate ahead so I just baked it in the oven in the marinade and it still came out great. Next time I will marinate ahead to get more flavor, but this was still excellent and we will definitely make this again.

This was a great way to use up the coconut water, orange juice and pineapple I had left from ZWT7. I didn't freeze as in the directions but I marinated the chicken in the fridge from early morning till dinner time. It came out lushious, moist and delicious. Served with ginger rice and fresh asparagus this was a real treat that everyone loved tonight. It came together very quickly but tasted like I had worked on it for a long time.
