      Loved it, reminded me of the meals I ate in Panama as a child. I loved the sweet plantain. This is a wonderful side dish to jazz up chicken.

      These are a great sweet treat. I made 1/2 of a plantain following this recipe, and the other 1/2 without the sugar but sprinkling with salt after removing from the pan (to see which recipe I liked better). I actually really liked both. This one is better for a dessert or sweet snack, and the salted plantains would be better with breakfast or a side dish in place of potatoes or rice. Great either way!
