Caribbean Delight Recipe

When hot summer nights drive me out of the kitchen, I head for the grill with this recipe. Along with a salad, my family loves this not-so-subtle spicy chicken.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)

Directions

  • 1. In a small saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the vinegar, lime juice, sugar, curry, salt and cayenne. Place chicken in a large resealable plastic bag; add onion mixture. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
