Grilled Chicken de Bahamas
Serves 4
4 Chicken Breasts (recommend skin-on and bone-in)
Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Juice of 2 Fresh Limes OR 1 Lemon
2 Tbs. Olive Oil
1/4 cup Bacon, finely diced
1/2 cup Red Onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup Green Bell Pepper Strips, thinly sliced
1/2 cup Celery, finely chopped
2 cups Diced Canned Tomatoes (with juice)
1 cup Chicken Stock
1 Tbs. Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 tsp. Dried Thyme
Cooked Rice of Your Choice

Season the chicken with salt and pepper and marinate in lime or lemon juice for not less than 15 minutes and not longer than 2 hours. Prepare your grill while the chicken is marinating.

Grill chicken over moderate heat for about 10 minutes on each side or until just cooked through. Remember to keep the skin on the chicken as you grill, because the skin will help keep it moist. You may elect to remove the skin after cooking, just prior to serving. Meanwhile, while the chicken is grilling, prepare the sauce: Heat oil and bacon in a large saucepan over medium heat. When the bacon is brown, add the onion, green pepper, and celery, and sauté, covering the saucepan and reducing the heat to low. Simmer for about 10 minutes or until everything is tender. Add the tomatoes, chicken stock, Worcestershire sauce, and thyme. Continue to simmer, uncovered, for
about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve with rice.

Cornell Sauce
1 egg
1 cup canola oil
2 cups cider vinager
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon Bell's seasoning (poultry seasoning)
1/2 teaspoon pepper

This sauce was invented by Bob Baker who worked in nutritional science here at Cornell University.  It's called Cornell Sauce. It's best to let the chicken marinade at least over night. This sauce also works well with turkey, especially turkey breast.

Beat egg and slowly add oil.  Mixture should be very thick.  Add spices and beat well.  Slowly add vinager.  Baste chicken or turkey every 7 - 10 minutes.  This sauce will keep in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks.
