FOR THE MOJO SAUCE —
FOR CHICKEN & BANANAS —
Plantains, a starchy bananalike island staple, are a typical tropical side dish. But grilled bananas taste great too, and are a fun alternative to plantains that everyone will eat.
Preheat grill to high. Brush grill grate with oil
Whisk all ingredients for the mojo together in a bowl; set aside.
Combine sugar and spices for the chicken in a bowl, then rub chicken with the spice mixture.
Lightly coat bananas and chicken with nonstick spray. Grill the chicken and orange halves for 5 minutes, then turn the chicken over and baste with mojo. Transfer oranges to a platter off heat. Cook chicken 5 minutes more, or until cooked through, turning and basting once or twice. A few minutes before chicken is done, grill the bananas, basting with mojo sauce and turning often to char. Cut bananas into chunks before serving.
