    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 Recipe #373354 and Recipe #373072. 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 Recipe #373001 and steamed broccoli. Thank you Sue! Made for ZWT5 & Dining Daredevils.

    My 3 1/2 year old thoroughly approved, FIL & I just thought it was OK. I was surprised they weren't hotter.

    I skipped the sugar and doubled the orange juice and soy sauce. Then baked until the sugars caramelized. I used boneless chicken thighs and added sliced green and yellow peppers to cook with the chicken. Very delicious Sauce and chicken. This is a nice mild jerk recipe. Made for ZWT 5.
