Ingredients

8 oz

1/2 c
rum
3 Tbsp
lime juice
2 Tbsp
soy sauce
1 Tbsp
brown sugar
2 clove
garlic, minced

Step-By-Step

1Drain the pineapple, reserving the liquid. Store pineapple chunks in the refrigerator.
2Combine the pineapple juice, rum, lime juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, curry powder, ginger, cloves, and red pepper in a medium bowl; stir well.
3Place chicken in a 13x9x2 inch baking dish. Pour the marinade mixture over the chicken; cover tightly, and marinate in the refrigerator for 8 hours.
4Drain the chicken, reserving marinade. Place the marinade in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 3 minutes. Set marinade aside.
5Bake chicken, uncovered, at 375° for 40 minutes, basting occasionally with the reserved marinade. Add reserved pineapple chunks and orange segments to chicken. Bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until the chicken is done. Garnish if desired with lime wedges.
