    justcallmetoni's Note:

    Serious comfort food here. Well seasoned chicken with tender, carmelized onions and plaintains. I like to remove the skin after cooking, not before, in order to keep the chicken moist during baking. While we prefer breasts and thighs, you can use whichever pieces you prefer. I've done some minor revisions to this recipe from Canadian Living.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    2. 2
      In small bowl, combine paprika, cumin, the salt and 1/2 tsp of the pepper. Rub over under the skin of the chicken breasts and thighs.
    3. 3
      In shallow Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Place chicken pieces skin side down and cook 3-5 minutes until chicken is browned. Transfer to plate.
    4. 4
      Using the same pan, brown the plantains, turning once, about 2 minutes. Transfer to plate.
    5. 5
      Drain off any fat in pan. Add garlic, onions and remaining salt and pepper. Cook until onions are softened, 5 minutes. Add broth or wine and bring to boil, scraping up brown bits from bottom of pan.
    6. 6
      Layer plantains on top of the onions. Arrange chicken and any accumulated juices on top. Bake in oven until juices run clear when chicken is pierced and skin is crispy, about 40 minutes.
    7. 7
      Serve with lime wedges to squeeze over top.

      Yummy! I used these ingredients, added a can of Rotel (diced tomatoes and green chiles, spicy!), and baked the chicken breasts in foil packets.

      This was AMAZING! I served it with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and it was a definite hit. I forgot to add the chicken broth or wine so my chicken was a bit dry, but the onions, plantains and potatoes mixed all together were SO good that I didn't even care.

      I used leg quarters, which required longer baking time, one hour. The chicken was truly scrumptious. I basted with the chicken broth while the chicken cooked and I made the plantains separate. The chicken is very flavorful and I imagine it is even better baking on the onions and plantains, however I had the satisfy the onionphobes in my family and leave them out!
