Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
I love this chicken. My whoel family ate it right up! I did omit the coffee too, and it came out wonderful. I did use 3 Tbp of brown sugar, and it came out nice and thick. I also only used 1 tsp of ginger, just because I do not care for ginger to much. Will make again!
A huge hit!!
Double the recipe or you run out of sauce. I have made this several time for company and they all leave with the recipe in hand.
A Must Have
I say that this is a must have for everyone that wants a great chicken meal and wants to try something new.
This chicken was excellent! My husband is actually from the Caribbean, and he loved it, and my 2 year old cleaned her plate, and that's saying something! It did need a little longer to cook than noted on the thicker pieces, but it was sooo amazingly tender. I listened to earlier reviews and nixed the coffee, and I used twice the amount of fresh garlic called for. I used pre-squeezed lime juice because I had it on hand. It was perfect, but I want to make it even better. Next time, I'm going to add more brown sugar for a thicker glaze, and use fresh lime to get some of the pulp in there. Don't skimp on the rum! I was afraid because it smelled so strongly at first, but now I wish I'd used more. It was polished off with no leftovers and even the serving plate was licked clean!
