  • 1/4 ts Ground red pepper
  • 4 Cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 Skinned, (4-ounce) boned
  • -chicken breast halves
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 2 c Water
  • 1/2 c Diced red bell pepper
  • 1 tb Chopped purple onion

Directions: Combine first 4 ingredients in a large zip-top heavy-duty
plastic bag. Add chicken; seal bag, and marinate in refrigerator 8 hours,
turning bag occasionally.

Remove chicken from bag, reserving marinade. Coat the grill rack with
cooking spray; place on grill over medium-hot coals. Place chicken on rack,
and cook 10 minutes on each side or until chicken is done, basting
occasionally with reserved marinade. Set aside, and keep warm.

Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan; add bell pepper and onion. Cook
30 seconds; drain. Plunge into ice water; drain well. Set aside.

Position knife blade in food processor bowl; add beans and next 5
ingredients. Process until smooth. Pour into a saucepan, and cook over
medium heat until heated.

Spoon 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon bean mixture onto each of 4 serving plates.
Place 1 chicken breast half on top of sauce; top each with 2 tablespoons
bell pepper mixture. Garnish with fresh cilantro, if desired.

Note: The exotic flavors of South Florida and the Caribbean combine in this
attractive yet easy entree. Serve it with yellow rice, a tossed green
salad, and crusty bread to use for sopping up every single drop of the
delicious savory sauce.
