Montego Bay Chicken

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

    Quick, easy and delicious. I cooked this on non stick aluminum foil on the barbecue to keep the chicken from drying out before it was cooked through.

    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

    Very nice flavor! I marinated the chicken for about 4 hours... it turned out great. Very easy. Will definitely make this again.

    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 atthe charcoal grill, so I broiled it. I like toserve it with Curried Pineapple Rice (QuickCooking), steamed broccoli, and CocunutCream Pie (Quick Cooking) or BroiledBananas a la Mode (Taste of Home).
