Treasure Chest Chicken Breasts

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by NcMysteryShopper

No booty here… all breasts! This island gem’s treasure is the bounty of roasted vegetables and fruit that accompany the Caribbean soaked chicken. A simple and delicious one-dish meal with little clean up!

This was very good. A bit much starch for me...but fabulous flavor!! And it really doesn't get any easier!! Gashing the chicken is a great idea, too. Thank you!

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Mix all marinade ingredients in a large zip lock or large container with lid.
  3. Make 3 or 4 deep slashes in each chicken breast.
  4. Add all the remaining ingredients (the veggies, fruit and chicken) to the container with marinade and toss to coat evenly. Put contents into large baking pan reserving as much of the marinade as possible and arrange the chicken so that is on top. Rub the remaining marinade all over the chicken and into the slashes.
  5. Place in oven on an upper rack. After 40 minutes for bone-in chicken and 30 minutes for boneless chicken check to see if the chicken is no longer pink. If your vegetables are cut into larger chunks make sure they do not need additional cooking time at this point. If so, remove chicken and keep warm and return veggies to the oven.
  6. For a crisp skin turn broiler on for 5 minutes before removing from oven.
