Caribbean Chicken Fingers

In the islands, where we use lemons, they use limes. On everything! These tasty grilled strips of chicken feature lots of lime zest and just enough cayenne to leave a nice, warm feeling. This is party food - no silverware needed.


4 pounds chicken tenders
3 - 4 limes
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper

      The Recipe

Arrange chicken in a roasting pan. Drizzle with a little olive oil and season with salt (I like to use coarse sea salt). With a good, sharp grater or zester, grate the green skin off the limes into a small bowl. In the same bowl, add the juice from the limes. Sprinkle zest and juice over chicken. Season evenly with cayenne pepper.
Cover chicken and marinate from 1 hour to overnight. You can either cook the strips on the grill, or broil in the oven, turning once. Serves about a dozen partygoers.
