    Directions

    1. Rinse chicken and pat dry; then arrange, skinned side up, in a 9- by 13-inch baking pan. Drizzle evenly with soy sauce. Bake, uncovered, in a 450 degree oven, basting occasionally, until meat in thickest part is no longer pink; cut to test (about 20 minutes).
    2. Meanwhile, place cornstarch in a 1 1/2- to 2-quart pan; smoothly stir in brandy. Peel and core pears, then cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Add pears to pan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, mixing gently. Then reduce heat, cover, and simmer until pears are tender when pierced (about 5 minutes).
    3. When chicken is done, add pear mixture to baking pan; gently shake pan to mix pears and chicken. Transfer chicken, pears, and sauce to a platter and garnish with parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper; offer lime wedges to squeeze over individual servings.
