  1. Combine marinade mix with water, oil and vinegar in glass dish or large self-closing plastic bag. Add chicken, turning to coat all sides. Marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes, or longer for extra flavor.
  2. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium. Cook chicken 4-5 minutes per side or until done, basting with remaining marinade halfway through cooking, if desired. Discard any leftover marinade.
  3. Rub or brush red onion slices with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Grill over medium heat 3-4 minutes per side.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine salsa ingredients. Serve chicken atop grilled red onion slices; top with salsa.

Great recipe! We like things spicy so I added a little extra crushed red pepper. Served it to guests along with grilled veggies and rice. (We bought an extra pkg of marinade for our veggies so the flavors would tie in nicely.) The meal looked like we spent a lot of time on it, but didn't. Will definately make again and again.

I couldn't find the carribean seasoning, so I used the Baja Citrus like another reviewer was ok. I love Paul Newman's pineapple salsa, so that's what I had in mind when I thought of pineapple salsa, but this is much different. I'm not a cilantro fan, but I gave it a shot since I have recently come to love many foods that I once thought I hated--but cilantro is just not one of those foods for me. I'll go with parsley next time. Prolly even toss in a can of diced tomatoes. My boyfriend loved it, I thought it was just ok. Nothing special.

Though this is a McCormick(r) submitted recipe, we tried it with a different Caribbean spice, more garlic, and a lemon "Pam" spray before grilling. We also added Mango to the salsa recipe........ GREAT

Mixed review from two opposite tastes: husband thought it was too spicy. I thought it was perfect. If you like spicy and sweet, you will like this. The cool pineapple salsa offsets the heat of the marinade. If you like it less spicy, you can omit the red pepper flakes, as they do add more kick. It really has a nice tropical flavor.

Excellent recipe!! Perfect balance of sweet and spicy! I recommend doubling the pineapple salsa!

Salsa was wonderful. It would complement any spicy chicken or pork dish.

Wow-this won rave reviews from everyone at my dinner party. I served it as suggested w/ the grilled onion rings and pineapple salsa and the presentation was spectacular!

This was really tasty. I was unable to find this Grill mates mix in my local markets, so I had to improvise with marinade ingredients. I let this sit in the marinade overnite and then grilled on my George Foreman grill. This tasted very good with the salsa. I'll keep looking for the grill mix, but I'll make it again my way if I can't find it.
