  • About

On most of the islands of the Caribbean, it’s common to rinse chicken and meats in lime juice before cooking. The practice probably originated in the days before refrigeration, when the citrus juice served as both a flavoring and disinfectant. Today we prize the lime juice for the tart, tangy flavor it imparts to the chicken. Serve the chicken with Bahamian Peas and Rice.
