YUMM!! I, of course, forgot to go out back for the thyme & also forgot the tomato paste until I had dumped out the portion for marinating. So, the sauce was a bit better than the marinade because I hooked that little mini prep back up, added the missing ingredients & whizzed it all up! My plantains were a bit on the soft side but still grilled well. Absolutely delicious. Made for ZWT9, Mike & the Appliance Killers.

Very good chicken - didn't have any tomato paste so subbed catsup -- but other wise made as directed except I used 1 pkg chicken thighs and 1 pkg chicken breasts. This is the first time I made plantains which were interesting and along with fruit salad made a very nice dinner. Thanks for sharing!
