    CobraLimes's Note:

    Simple, tasty, and off the beaten track from regular rice bowls. Assembly takes moments and everything can be prepared in advance and frozen. Easily prepped, frozen, and microwaveable with the exception of the bananas and garnish. Also, can be arranged without the chicken for a nice vegetarian meal. Great dish for Chinese takeout leftover rice!

      Loved this! I marinated the chicken in a jerk marinade and grilled it and instead of flour on the bananas I dusted them with a cinnamon/chili powder mixture. I also topped it with a pineapple salsa. The whole meal was easy and fast to make and the flavors were amazing! We couldn't get enough of it! Will definitely be making it again, thank you for posting!

      Very good. The bananas turned out so great. I made mango salso to go with it and it was a great blend of flavors.

      I was really impressed with the way the flavors worked together. It definitely needed the salsa with it though.
