Grilled Caribbean Chicken Breasts

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by justcallmetoni

Another gem adapted from the National Chicken Council, this recipe uses spices and flavors of the topical Caribbean to liven up the humble (and often bland) chicken breasts. As warm weather approaches in the northern hemisphere, this will be a hit at the family BBQ.

Yummy and different than the same old same old grilled chicken. We enjoyed this and will definitely make it again, next time we'll use an injector to get the juice through.
