Montego Bay Chicken Recipe

You don't need high-fat ingredients to make this grilled chicken taste good. The marinade both flavors and tenderizes the meat. —Julie De Matteo, Clementon, New Jersey
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 teaspoon rum extract
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)


  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the soy sauce, juice, sugar, garlic, hot pepper sauce, extract and ginger; add chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

"Not Crazy about the flavors."

"My husband and I really liked this. I marinated my chicken for about 5 hours. I couldn't find my hot sauce so that ingredient was left out and I substituted brandy extract for the rum because that's what I had. I was juicy and flavorful. I will definitely make again!"

"I 'cheated' and used thighs and legs ... took the skin off and it was EXCELLENT; however would be easier to eat with BNLS chicken"

"it as really good. But next time, I want to save some of the marinated from the chicken, cook it to kill any bacteria from the chicken, and sprinkle it over the chicken when it's done grilling, before serving. When I grilled the chicken I lost some of the flavor of the marinated."

"This is so flavorful. I am not good at

the charcoal grill, so I broiled it. I like to
serve it with Curried Pineapple Rice (Quick
Cooking), steamed broccoli, and Cocunut
Cream Pie (Quick Cooking) or Broiled
Bananas a la Mode (Taste of Home)."
