I followed the recipe to the T, marinaded the chicken for 6 hours, cooked it according to recipe. The chicken had no flavor at all. It would of tasted better with some simple jerk seasoning. Will not make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Everyone loved it. Was very easy to make and was very delicious. I did use more jalapeno though and lime juice. I also cut up some onions and bell peppers and put under the chicken and just baked it all together! I will definitely cook this many more times. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband was groaning over the chicken. I was impressed. I marinated 19 hours. I could only find chicken thighs instead. Cost about $5.00 for three adult portions. I didn't bother taking the lime skin, I used the juice instead. I oven baked 375 for 50 minutes. It was very good and healthy. Must try. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Really good, grilled up beautifully. Could use more jalapeno and allspice. Also added juice from the zested lime to the marinade. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Marinade smelled fantastic after I blended it in the food processor, but it didn't stick to the chicken at all during the grilling process. It marinated for about 6 hours, but it didn't have much flavor after it was grilled. Not a fan. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a good recipe. Not's been Americanized, but still good. The chicken had a great look and texture. Also, it took longer to cook in the oven. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I think marinating is probably the key. I didn't have much time so it only marinated for a couple of hours. The skin was really tasty but the chicken itself was not as flavorful. Will definitely make again with more time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Freakin' aweome recipe. Chicken took much longer to cook in oven. I had read the reviews prior to making chicken so I did expect that. I left the skin on even though I have never done that. It gave it a moist flavorful texture. Also, per recipe, I grilled it on grill pan prior to oven and it gave it a great taste! This was family hit. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Dude, so easy and yummy! Let it marinate for 24 hours due to crazy rain in June on the Nor Cal coast. Then cooked it entirely on the grill. it was so delicious and made the fog fade away and the rythem of carribean drums seem that much closer. item not reviewed by moderator and published
