AIMEE'S BELIZE CHICKEN

The food in Belize is a combination of various “types” of food.  There is a Caribbean influence, as well as Hispanic and Creole.  When we were in Belize several years ago, I had some type of a wonderful chicken dish - it had sweet and savory tastes to it. Here is what I came up with, to duplicate that dish:

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bites
  • 2 Tablespoons allspice
  • 1 Tablespoon Creole Seasoning
  • dash of cayenne pepper
  •  1 Tablespoon coconut or olive oil 

In a large cast iron skillet, heat the oil over medium heat.  In a large bowl using tongs, mix chicken, allspice, Creole seasoning and cayenne pepper.  Being careful not to burn yourself (as the oil might splatter out, so be very careful!), add the chicken to the oil.  It will only take about six to eight minutes to cook the chicken.  Serve with coconut rice and black beans!
