Top Review by Chef Slow Joe

I sprinkled salt over both sides of the chicken and added a shake of poultry seasoning on one side. On the mashed banana, I sprinkled a little cinnamon and sugar mix, and a sprinkle of chili powder. (I've found, adding a touch of spicy ingredient to something that is sweet works well) I used one banana and one chicken breast butterflied thin. I baked it at 375 for twenty or so minutes. My wife added sliced almonds and was happy as could be with it! Thanks for the good start!


  1. Wash chicken breasts and dip them in oil.
  2. Mash bananas.
  3. Arrange chicken on a baking sheet and cover each piece with banana.
  4. You can garnish this with almost any spice imaginable--popular ethnic ones are paprika, coriander, poppyseeds, or cinnamon.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until chicken reaches internal temperature of 165 degrees.
