A Little Break

We're on our way out this morning. :-) We're going to spend the weekend in the beautiful city of Milwaukee. We have a day planned at the zoo, and rumor is this weekend is the Mexican and Latin Festival, so we may make our way to the Lakeshore some time as well. Mmm. Mexican street food. Anyway, I had to get in a quick post before heading out and wish everyone a nice weekend.

I'll leave you with a very delicious, very easy recipe for Caribbean chicken. The only change I made to this recipe was to add a few dashes of Pickapeppa Sauce and a bit of lime zest, but other than that, it's lip-smacking good. Perfect if you're grilling this weekend, enjoy.

Caribbean Chicken

1/2 cup pineapple juice, frozen concentrate -- thawed
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup brown sugar -- firmly packed
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons molasses
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Combine pineapple juice, lime juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, water, molasses, and red pepper in a shallow glass dish or zip lock bag until sugar is dissolved. Add chicken; cover dish or close bag.

Marinate in refrigerator up to 6 hours, turning once.

Grill chicken, covered, over medium coals, 10 to 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.
