- 1 medium-size lime
- 2 tablespoons dark rum

- 1 yellow onion,peeled and chopped

Using a swivel-bladed vegetable peeler,remove the peel from half of the lime and set aside.Juice the lime into a shallow glass bowl. Add the lime peel to the lime juice,along with rum,garlic,ginger,and red pepper sauce.Add the chicken breasts,tossing to cot well. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight,turning the chicken breasts in the marinade several times.
Lightly coat a heavy 12-inch nonstick skillet with the cooking spray and set over moderate heat for 30 seconds. Add the chicken,reserving the marinade,and cook about 2½ minutes on each side. Transfer to a platter.
In the same skillet,cook the onion,uncovered,over moderate heat until soft-about 5 minutes.

Reduce the heat to low and simmer,uncovered,for 20 minutes.Transfer the chicken to a platter. Raise the heat under the skillet to high and boil the sauce,uncovered,until slightly thickened-3 to 5 minutes. Return the chicken breasts to the skillet and heat through for 2 to 3 minutes
Remove the cinnamon stick,arrange the chicken and sauce in a serving dish,and garnish with banana slices. Serve with tossed green salad.
