          Caribbean Recipe & Cocktail of the Week

          Posted in Food and Drink by Jan Locke on 27th Mar 2020


          Caribbean Easy Chicken

          This is a very simple recipe that uses easy-to-find ingredients. Serve with some steamed vegetables for a complete meal. Use cubes of pork or even prawns instead of the chicken.


          Ingredients

          • 1 tablespoon olive oil
          • 1 pound of chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
          • 2 teaspoons garlic-herb seasoning 
          • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chopped tomatoes
          • 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened pineapple chunks
          • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
          • Hot cooked rice
          • Fresh coriander leaves, optional

          Cooking Method

          • In a large nonstick pan, heat the oil over a medium-high heat. Add chicken and seasoning; saute until chicken is lightly browned and no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, pineapple and barbecue sauce. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until flavors are blended and chicken is cooked through, 5-7 minutes. Serve with rice and, if desired, cilantro.


          Caribbean Rum Punch

          The Caribbeans swear by the following poem to ensure you get the balance of flavour right every time.

          One of sour, two of sweet
          Three of strong and four of weak
          A dash of bitters and a sprinkle of spice
          Serve well chilled with plenty of ice


          Ingredients

          • 1 part lime juice
          • 2 parts demerara sugar
          • 3 parts dark bajan rum
          • 4 parts soda water
          • dash bitters
          • 1/4 tsp nutmeg


          Method

          • Combine all ingredients with ice in a punch bowl, serve immediately.
