“I like my food bursting with flavor, so I love to experiment with all different ethnic recipes. Sweet, tangy barbecue sauce goes well with the heat of the jerk-seasoned marinade in this recipe. Ease of prep plus an appealing presentation make it great for entertaining. And friends always come back for seconds!” —Karen Cambiotti, Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Caribbean jerk seasoning
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 1 pound)
  • BARBECUE SAUCE:
