I found this Guyanese dish on a site for Caribbean recipes. The time does not include the marinating time (minimum 2 hours).

My original review isn't showing up, so I am rewriting. I made this chicken for dinner as a recipe of choice for ZWT 5. I followed the recipe as written, except for adding a little bit more cumin and letting it marinade for just over 24 hours. Though the chicken was very moist, it seemed to lack in the flavor department. I did take it pretty easy with the cayenne, didn't want to burn the kids lips off. We were expecting more and I really wanted my family to love it, given the fact it was so simple and used things that I always keep around the house. Maybe with some tweaking it could be a great recipe, but I'm sorry it didn't work out very well for us this time around. Thanks for sharing....... Made for ZWT 5 for the Genies of Gourmet.
