Sorry to say, I was a bit disappointed by this recipe. I guess maybe my expectations were too high. I thought it might be kind of exotic and even a tad decadent. It's sort of pretty to look at and probably pretty healthy, but I found the flavor to be just a bit odd. I did make it exactly as written, using Penzeys "Jerk - Chicken & Fish" seasoning. My chicken breast halves were pretty large so I needed to cook them for twice as long in order to get them cooked through. Maybe others will like this more than I did, but I personally found the results just okay at best.
Oh my this recipe was absolutely Yummy !!! So quick to put together and fast to cook. The jerk seasonings really give it a nice kick. If you don't like spice then cut back a bit on this, but I loved it. The flavors of the juices with the cumin and jerk were really intriguingly good. I will be keeping this one to make again. This recipe would work well too with some thinly cut beef or shrimps. Thanks for sharing this great recipe Sharon. Made in memory of Sharon's DH
