Chicken pieces of your choice marinated in a golden glaze of molasses, pineapple juice, rum, mustard, garlic and ketchup; then baked, brushed and broiled to sun-kissed perfection! I have just come back from a holiday in the Caribbean, so I was inspired to create a 'taste of the sun'. Enjoy!

  • Place chicken pieces in a lightly oiled 9x13 inch baking dish; brush both sides with prepared glaze, using about 1/2 of the glaze. Cover dish and refrigerate to marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Also, refrigerate remaining glaze.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Lightly brush chicken pieces on one side with some of the reserved glaze and bake uncovered in preheated oven for about 25 minutes. Turn pieces, brush with remaining glaze and bake for another 25 minutes or until chicken is tender.

  • Preheat oven to broil.

  • Put chicken under broiler and lightly brown on both sides, about 2 to 3 minutes each side. (Note: Watch chicken carefully, as this 'sugary' glaze burns easily!)

I made this written to a T other then have a few extra pieces of chicken to use. I was so-so with this personally (something with the flavor) and my family totally loved the recipe. The chicken was tender and moist. I'll make it again for the family because they liked it. Possibly would change the molasses to honey. Read More

Nice flavor. I used cubed boneless chicken breasts and added some pineapple chunks and a splash of soy sauce. Thanks! Read More

We really enjoyed this recipe. It sounds weird but I added some cubed fresh peaches to the pan about 5 minutes before it was done. My husband thought the chicken was finger lickin' good and our 2 year-old ate it too. Read More

Great flavor. Not a big fan of rum but it blended nicely. The rum was not overwhelming. Next time I will try grilling it. My son re-named it Pirate Chicken because Pirates love Rum!!! Read More

A nice change from the every day recipes. My family enjoyed the chicken but it wasn't a recipe that they raved about. Read More

'Think it's the Canadian part - molasses - that didn't hit me just right. Maybe it needs a spice or two to balance the sweetness. 'Not bad but not memorable either. I expect a good dish when having to marinate it. Not this time. Read More

Yummy! Simple I might go for boneless thighs next time and a longer lower cooking time. But the flavor is terrific and I won't change a thing about it. Read More
