    southern chef in louisiana's Note:

    This is great to celebrate the coming of warm weather. This dish combines Florida citrus with Caribbean pepper. Serve on a bed of hot rice. This is a quick dish--from start to finish, it takes about 20 minutes.

      This dish was absolutely wonderful! Thank you so much for posting it! I did change it a little to suit my family's taste. Instead of boneless chicken, I used skinless leg quarters and simmered them in citrus mixture in a large pot. I pierced them, too, to allow the juice to absorb into the chicken. My DH is a very picky eater, and he loved it. He suggested more orange juice in it for next time. Even my picky 2 yr old DD and 11 mo old DS enjoyed the chicken. Again, thank you very much!
