Caribbean Chicken Recipe & Digital Thermometer Review

Thursday, June 20, 2019

With the summer weather in full swing, here is a chicken marinade that offers the perfect amount of heat. The flavor is blended with the right amount of sweet, savory, and aromatic spices. Perfect for those summer meals. The taste of this Carribean dish will evoke images of tropical beaches, cool ocean breezes, and icy rum-infused cocktails. Since it isn’t weighed down by heavy ingredients, this island indulgence is guilt-free and easy to prepare.

Caribbean Chicken Recipe
  • Yield: 4 servings
  • Prep time: 10 minutes (plus 2-hour marination)
  • Cook time: 15 minutes
  • 4 (4 ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
  • For the Marinade:
  • 4 medium green onions, sliced
  • 1-2 jalapeno chilis, seeded and chopped (for additional heat, leave seeds in)
  • 1⁄3 cup lemon juice
  • 1⁄4 cup honey, warmed slightly to soften
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Add marinade ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. Place chicken in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag.
  2. Pour marinade over chicken and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  3. Prep your grill or heavy flat-bottom skillet to medium-high heat.
  4. Remove chicken from marinade and place on grill or skillet. (Use a non-stick skillet or add olive oil to skillet prior to cooking chicken.)
  5. Cover and cook for 6-7 minutes per side or until internal temperature has reached 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  6. Baste with marinade during cooking, but discard any remaining marinade before serving.

The 6-Inch Digital Thermometer with 3-1/8-Inch Probe was a perfect addition to use while preparing this recipe. The recipe itself is amazing with all the different flavor profiles added within the dish. It offers the perfect amount of heat to compliment the heat of summer.

The thermometer worked perfectly and was a critical part of making sure that my chicken was properly cooked. The last thing anyone wants is a bite of uncooked chicken. This thermometer offers a digital reading ranging from -40 to 450-degrees F and is NSF certified. There is a built-in clip for mounting and a protection cap to place over the end with the probe. The hold function is a nice added feature. It is also not dishwasher safe.

I tested a few different types of meat alongside a digital thermometer I already had. This one worked just as well as the one I already had. I am very happy with the thermometer’s accuracy. Plus, the big screen is a nice addition.

This recipe is one that is now a family favorite and the digital thermometer is a great way to make sure I get my recipe cooked perfectly for us to enjoy.

  1. Lovely recipe. Thanks for the review of the digital thermometer. I'm shopping for a new one!

  2. This chicken looks and sounds so good. I am very surprised that it does not have a lot more spices in it. I have all of this on hand including some chicken that I bought yesterday.

  3. My son has a heart transplant so we make sure we always check the meat we cook with one its so important to do. I love the recipe too.

  4. This looks so good. I'm always looking for new recipes and I'm definitely going to make this tonight.
