  • 6 skinless chicken thighs
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 pint Cherry tomatoes multi color

  • 3 garlic cloves chopped
  • Thyme sprigs
  • 1 Scotch bonnet seeds removed
  • 2 tablespoons green seasoning
  • ½ cup dark rum (Rhum Barbancourt preferably)

  • Clean the chicken pieces in a vinegar or lemon bath. Pat dry and set aside.
  • Mix flour and Lemon & Pepper Seasoning in shallow dish. Coat evenly with seasoned flour.
  • Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a large dutch oven over medium heat. Cook 1/2 of the chicken pieces 4 to 5 minutes per side or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining chicken, adding additional butter if necessary.
  • Place chicken pieces on a baking sheet preferably and roast in an oven at 400 degrees for 30 - 40 minutes or until fully cooked.
