This Carribbean chicken is a recipe I have made for many years, and was once a favorite of my mother. She was so fond of the sweet and tangy flavors of it. Here are the ingredients that go into the "secret sauce" if you will-- lemon (including zest), coarse ground pepper, two shots of white wine, dark corn syrup, crushed oregano, seasoned salt, and butter to follow.

Out to the pit to grill the chicken breasts

Then we simmer the breasts in the secret sauce for a spell. Notice the lemon zest atop the chicken. Whoever thought of that one is brilliant.

Okay, we're now ready to plate it on a bed of orange rice and special green beans. Simple and humble appearance perhaps, but it greets the taste buds most affectionately.

Thanks much guys!

Jonboy, I get the orange rice very simply by making plain rice as package directs, but add yellow food coloring #6. In this case, it was one cup dry rice, 1/2 tsp coloring. The green beans are specially imported frozen from France, and are to me the most delicious I have ever had that did not come from a garden. If you have a Trader Joe's in your area, that's where to go look in the frozen veggies section.
