  1. Very tasty, easy chicken dish. The list of ingredients seem long, but actually it consists of stuff we all have in our kitchens. The directions are straightforward and easy. I cut down on the large recipe, as we are only 2 diners tonight. Great flavours, and a really good dish for someone like Larry, who has a B & B. Thanks, Larry!
  2. Well done! I didnt eat it ( vegetarian here) but I made it for my boyfriend who is a native Jamaican. I had to leave out the white vinegar and the salt . He ate it down in record time and it smelt great
  3. Yum-o!! This recipe was very tasty, indeed! Rather than mixing the ingredients in the 9x13 pan, I tossed everything into a large ziploc bag and shook it up. This is just a personal preference, as I like to give it a few quick shakes from time to time during the marinading process. When you're ready to cook, just toss it into the pan, cover and go.
  4. Spicy hot! Delicious combination of flavors. The chicken breast nuggets make a much better dish for finicky eaters who don't like picking through chicken bones.
