Recipe: Yucatan Chicken

Yucatan Chicken

This “urban” version of Yucatan Chicken is easy to make and never fails to provoke oohs and aahs from guests.  The banana in the marinade makes for an amazing coating that turns a nice red orange when finished.  Make sure you cook enough, because your guests are sure to ask for seconds.
