My family came to visit over the holidays. Whenever I have visitors I let them “order off the menu” or choose something else they want to try. My mom requested Caribbean chicken. I had been wanting to do a Caribbean chicken dish for a while so I happily obliged. This chicken was full of spice and flavor without being too overwhelming. The acidity of the tomatoes added a nice brightness that made me feel like I was lounging on a beach in the Caribbean. Serve it over a little rice and you’ve got yourself a dang delicious meal.
