      I'm on the fence on this one. I really liked the marinade, but once the chicken cooked the flavor wasn't very pronounced. The sweet potato absorbed the flavors really well, and the chicken didn't. Perhaps it was something I did, and I'd like to try this one again. Like Muffin Goddess, I didn't do individual packets but rather wrapped the entire thing in really large banana leaf and tied it with string. Placed it in a 9x13 pan and presto.

      I love the flavor that banana leaves give to the food that's wrapped in them. I liked the flavors in the sauce, but I did find that it needed some salt. I was really short on prep time, so instead of wrapping individual bundles, I just wrapped the whole lot in a big dutch oven. Because it was a larger mass of food, the chicken was cooked after 1 hour, but the veggies weren't quite done. I removed the chicken and kept it warm while I baked the veggies for another half an hour. The sweet potatoes were nice and soft by then, but I ended up throwing out the plantain because I think my plantains were too green to use (they were just too starchy to eat). Even with the longer cook time and the yucky plantains (both my own fault), the chicken and sweet potatoes were delicious! I wasn't sure how DH would feel about the coconut flavor on the chicken, but he ate nearly all of the chicken that night, so I guess that's a thumbs-up! Oh, I doubled the recipe and I just used all boneless skinless thighs for the chicken (DH doesn't do bony chicken). I'd like to make this again, but with black plantains instead of green ones. Thanks for posting! Made for the Emerald City Shakers for ZWT7

      This is a fun recipe. I had never worked with banana leaves before and it was really pretty easy. I loved the coconut flavor on the chicken and the sweet potatoes. The chicken was nice and moist. Thanks! Made for ZWT7 for the Golden Gourmets.
