Bahamian Grilled Chicken
4 Chicken breast halves; skin on, bone in
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 Fresh limes or 1 lemon; Juice of
2 Tablespoon Vegetable oil
1/4 Cup Finely diced bacon
1/2 Cup Finely chopped onion
1/2 Cup Thinly sliced green bell pepper strips
1/2 Cup Finely chopped celery
2 Cup Diced canned tomatoes and their juices
1 Cup Chicken stock
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 Teaspoon Dried thyme
TO GRILL THE CHICKEN: Season the chicken with salt and pepper and marinate in lime or lemon juice for 10 minutes. While this is marinating, heat the grill. Grill for 10 minutes on each side or until just cooked through. Keep the skin on as you grill the chicken to keep it moist. You can take the skin off after cooking. While the chicken is cooking, make the sauce.
TO MAKE THE SAUCE: In a 2−quart saucepan, over medium heat, heat the oil and bacon. When the bacon is brown, add the onion, green pepper and celery and cook, covered, over low heat for 10 minutes or until tender. Add the tomatoes and their juices, chicken stock, Worcestershire sauce, and thyme and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
