Have you ever heard soca music? ย I hadn’t before I moved to Cayman. It’s the most fun, exciting and happy music you could ever hope to hear! ย And I’ve got a fun, exciting and happy (at least your tummy will be) recipe to go with this music.

  45. Looks great! Love cooked pineapple!

  46. Sorry about the previous comment. I'm commenting from my daughter's computer…house/dog watching again, while they are off to North Carolina for yet, another vacation.
    This dish could not remind HER of the seventies…she was still a “toddler” back then!!!
    Now I'm really “laughing out loud” and will be crying soon, if she finds out that I'm logged on her blog, by mistake!
    I still love your Island chicken…and the cool island music to go with it!

  47. With fresh pineapple and orange juice, Soca chicken is something different! Shall try for sure! Buzzed this post.

  48. Love your island chicken dish! The pineapple really gives it a nice flavor along with the citrus and the bell peppers. This reminds me of the traditional sweet-sour dish from the seventies, that was so popular! (I'm sure that was probably before your time…lol)
    Congratulations on the well deserved awards!

  49. You did it again little girl! Not only does the dish look delicious, but you shared a whole new music genre with us! I think I love Soca….Happy Music! Thanks so much! You make me so proud! Mrs. Herb Garden

    Thanks,
    Dawnie
