4 servings

* PLUS Grilling Time: 12 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 skin-on, boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 limes
  • 2 tbsp rum , preferably dark
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp Tabasco sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Lightly oil grill and preheat barbecue to medium-high. Make a few slashes in tops of chicken breasts, slicing through skin. Squeeze 2 tablespoons (30 mL) juice from 1 lime into a large bowl. Stir in rum, oil, soy sauce, Tabasco, garlic, cinnamon, ginger and salt. Add chicken to bowl, turning to evenly coat.
  • Remove chicken from marinade and place skin-side down on barbecue. Grill with lid closed, about 6 minutes. Brush chicken with remaining marinade, then turn over. Continue grilling until chicken feels springy when pressed, about 6 more minutes. Remove chicken from grill and place on a platter. Slice remaining lime into wedges. Scatter over chicken and serve with Grilled Mango-and-coconut rice.
