Dog puke chicken?

I’ll be straight with you. A German-language Caribbean cookbook, published in Munich in 1987, and found in my local free book box recently, is not the most confidence-inspiring object. I had even less faith in it when I read the introduction to find the author assuring me that all the well-stocked grocers of the land carry ingredients such as fresh coconuts, chayote, ackee, and plantains. (To those of you not in Germany: three decades later, most well-stocked grocery stores would not have those things. Maybe fresh coconut. Sometimes. Maybe.)

But I made this chicken in mango-lime-rum sauce anyway, and it was so ridiculously good. I posted the photo on facebook, and a friend wrote that it looked exactly like some dog vomit her dog ran across, ate, and then vomited up again.
