The tropical-inspired cooking of the Florida Keys draws on the best of both of its worlds. Here, it combines fresh Florida citrus with the Caribbean penchant for fiery peppers.




  • In a large skillet cook chicken and garlic in butter over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink, turning chicken once and stirring garlic occasionally.

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine lime peel, lime juice, ginger, and red pepper; set aside. Peel orange. Reserving juice, cut orange in half lengthwise, then cut crosswise into slices. Add any reserved orange juice and the lime juice mixture to skillet. Place orange slices on top of chicken. Cook, covered, for 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through. Spoon any reserved drippings over chicken to serve. Makes 4 servings.
