Jamaican Calypso Chicken

Recipe by Sweet PQ
READY IN: 50mins




  • Drain the juice from the pineapple chunks into a zip-lock bag big enough to hold the chicken. Reserve the pineapple to add later. To the juice add rum, lime juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, curry powder, garlic, ginger, cloves and red pepper flakes. Stir or mush up the bag to blend.
  • Add the chicken, turning to coat well. Place in refrigerator skin side down to marinade for 3-6 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 375*. Saving the marinade, remove the chicken and place skin side up in a shallow baking dish.
  • Bake, uncovered, basting often with the pan juices and leftover marinade for 30-35 minutes.
  • Add the reserved pineapple chunks and mandarin oranges to the pan and bake 5-10 minutes more - until the chicken is no longer pink near the bone.
  • Serve the chicken with pan juices basted over, along with the fruit. I like to serve this over rice (especially coconut rice). You can garnish with sliced lime for presentation.
