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!
Outstanding, outstanding! I was running out of time tonight, and had just gotten some organic chicken thighs and legs from our local store. When I rubbed the Hungarian hot paprika, cumin, and S&P right into the chicken and browned it in the oil. I moved the chicken off to the side a bit, and added the plantains to brown in the browned bits. Terrific! I put the chicken in the pot/with plantains and added a bit of wine with the onions and reduced until it was a juicy bit of delicious topping. We will be making this again, and soon. Thanks, Toni!
MMMMM! I made this today and it was very good. My plantains were hit or miss though. Some pieces were nice and sweet, others were a bit dry. I think next time, I will use more oil when frying the plantains. The seasoning on the chicken, however, was perfect! I will do this again. Thanks!
Excellent flavor and a very good combination of flavors. I found the dish to be too dry--added stock and wine and still wished I had a bit more liquid at the end. It is important not to slice the plantains too thin or they become too hard after baking.
Very nice flavor with the spices under the skin. I used sweet paprika, but next time I'll try the hot paprika for a little more "kick". I wasn't sure I'd like the combination of onions and plantains, but it worked well. The onions seemed to pick up some sweetness from browning, the wine, and from the plantains. Thanks for sharing this recipe, toni.
