This chicken dish is sweet, spicy, and full of flavor. We really loved the addition of apples, and think this would be terrific served alongside some wild rice for a special dinner. Enjoy!

How To Make caribbean chicken

  • Marinating the chicken tenderloins.
    30 minutes to 1 hour before cooking, place chicken in deep dish and cover with about 1/2 bottle of marinade. Place in refrigerator.
  • Baking the chicken tenderloins.
    When ready to start cooking, place chicken on a baking sheet. Bake at 375º until done. Save the remainder of the marinade.
  • Frying the Italian peppers.
    Put 1/2 of butter in a frying pan. Cook garlic and Italian pepper. Add basil and cook until peppers are tender; remove from pan.
  • Apples sauteeing with marmalade and Worcestershire sauce.
    Add more butter to the pan. Then add apple slices. Sprinkle lemon juice over apples to prevent browning, then simmer until apples are softened. Add Worcestershire sauce and marmalade; stir.
  • Peppers returned to the pan with apples.
    Return peppers to the pan and simmer briefly. Just before serving, sprinkle with just a touch of cayenne pepper.
  • Caribbean Chicken on a platter.
    Serve chicken tenderloins over apple and pepper mixture. Warm the reserved marinade for extra sauce. Add a tossed green salad on the side.
