Baked Chicken In Guava Sauce

Guava is one of my favorite fruits that I like also like to drink. (I love guava juice). I also love the Jam too. I found this recipe at Caribbean Choice. The combination of the Guava and the chicken has a similar taste to Turkey and Canberry. I used Chicken wings (because it took less time to cook). A very unique combination indeed. It goes well with Rice and Peas.


  • 1 stalk escallion, chopped
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 3 1/4 lbs. (3 kg) chicken, cut into 8 serving pieces
  • 1 cup guava pulp, chopped
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 whole ginger
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 cup guava juice
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 11/2 tsp. black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F / 180°C.
  2. Blend chopped escallion, onion and garlic with vegetable oil.
  3. Season chicken with blended seasonings and leave to marinate for about 20 minutes.
  4. Place chicken on a greased baking sheet and put to bake for about 40 minutes.
  5. To make guava sauce, combine guava pulp, Tomato Ketchup, ginger, sugar, guava juice, water and vinegar then put to boil for 15 minutes.
  6. After the sauce is reduced to thickness, add Fish and Meat Sauce(Grace makes a good product) then spoon the sauce over chicken.
  7. Allow chicken to bake for another 10 minutes until tender.


Serve with gungo rice and peas accompanied with buttered carrots and string beans along with a salad of your choice.
