“This poultry dish, marinated with lime and white rum, sounds like a taste of the Caribbean! I'm sure the marinade would be great on chicken breasts, too. I found this recipe in a Mix-and-Match Menu cookbook. I haven't tried it yet, but it's posted in response to a request. Prep time includes marinating time.”
