The chicken breasts are first marinated in a quite complex mixture of allspice, thyme, cayenne pepper, ground ginger, nutmeg, ground cinnamon, garlic, ginger, brown sugar, rum, lime juice, soy sauce, cider vinegar, red chillies and onion. After I blitzed it all together it was giving off a nose tingling vapour!
The chicken is then baked with its marinate whilst you prepare the rice and peas which is a more simple rice dish cooked with coconut milk and beans. I was meant to add chillies but left them out as I at least wanted one part of the dish toned down for my daughters sake.
The dish was really delicious. The chicken coated in the thick marinade was really delicious and perfectly complimented by the coconut in the rice. I was actually really surprised at how good this was. In the process I've already found some more delicious recipes in Kitchen I will be trying next week ;)
