      Delicious! I had to substitute white wine vinegar for white vinegar but it came out fine. It didn't seem spicy at all to me. Served with with baked plantains and a tropical fruit salad.

      Mmmmmmmmm...this chicken Jamaica me very happy :) I loved the flavors in the marinade; it had just the right amount of kick to it. I will be keeping this recipe close by for cookouts this summer. I served this chicken with Jamaican Rice and Peas and Bolo Di Mahishi -- Corn Pudding (Curacao -- Caribbean). Thanks for this yummy recipe, SueVM. Made for ZWT5. Update: This recipe is in my Top Favorites of 2009 Cookbook.

      I was afraid my kids wouldn't like the spiciness of this chicken, but they cleaned their plates! I used fresh garlic because I didn't have powder. Also, I added the cayenne only to the adult's half of the chicken. To cook the chicken, I first browned it in a cast iron skillet, then I put the skillet in the oven to finish cooking and poured about half the marinade on top. The marinade was a little salty, so I wont add as much salt next time. I liked this cooking method because the onions and bell pepper served as a garnish. Served it with Garlic Herbed Mashed Potatoes (Bahama Breeze's Recipe) and steamed broccoli. Thank you Sue! Made for ZWT5 & Dining Daredevils.
