Appleton Estate Rum in Grilled Chicken with Almond Satay

Appleton Estate makes some mighty fine Jamaican rum that has a really smooth taste with just a hint of nutty flavoring.  We received a sample of this for review, I surprised my husband with it for Father’s Day- he loves it.  I did try a few sips but rum isn’t my favorite thing unless it is mixed in with something else…like this AWESOME recipe we made the other night with the Appleton Estate rum- oh goodness.  Delicious.  (I did attempt a photo but my food never looks anything remotely like the photos so I’ll stick with a stock photo.).  The almond just adds a great texture and dimension!!  

Grilled Chicken with Almond Satay


Appleton Estate Reserve is perfectly matched with the intense nutty oils and spice of the satay and this richness is contrasted by the acidity of the fresh pineapple and citrus.


  • 2 tbsp. Peanut butter.
  • 2 tbsp. Soy sauce.
  • 3 tbsp. Fresh pressed lime juice.
  • 3 tbsp. Light brown sugar.
  • 1/2 cup Coconut milk.
  • 1/2 cup Blanched almonds, chopped
  • 1 red chilli, seeded and veins removed, finely diced


Whisk ingredients together over low heat until thoroughly mixed

Serve with grilled chicken skewers and an Appleton Estate Reserve Sharbat

I’m going to attempt a rum cake this weekend to bring to my dad.  He always LOVED rum cakes and I know he’ll appreciate this!! Do any of you have a no-fail rum cake recipe?  (I’m not kidding when I say “no-fail”!!)
I received a sample of this product to facilitate my review.  Opinions expressed within are my own.
