There is certainly nothing wrong with this recipe, it was easy enough to do. I decided not to attach a star rating to it though because it just wasn't my thing. I found it a lot of work for the outcome. Granted though, I've never worked with plantains before, and have maybe eaten them once or twice ever. I think perhaps my plantains were TOO green, because only a couple of pieces had a nice texture on the inside. It was interesting so I'm not sorry I made them....thanks for the introduction Leslie.

Wow, these are awesome Leslie. I really enjoyed this dish. It was quick and very easy to make. My dil's mother turned me on to plantains...and I will always be indebted to her for that. I love plantains, I have yet to try a recipe that I haven't enjoyed. Thanks so much for sharing a recipe that I will make again often. Made for Aussie Swap 01/10 :)

EXCELLENT!!! The greener plantain never softened up but the riper ones were still firm enough to come out perfectly! I haven't had these in a looong time & were a wonderful treat. Made for you for being a Tour Guide for the Kitchen Witches, ZWT5. xoxoxoxo

This was Jammin Mon! So good and easy. This is not greasy at all. Crisp. I made 1/2 the recipe wishing I made it all. I did add the garlic I used 2 crushed cloves to the oil flavoring it. Also was a nice treat along with the chips. This was part of Menu #28745 Made for ZWT5. Thanks!

These really were fun and easy to prepare! A wonderful substitute for french fries. Served with Bob Marley's Jamaican Jerk Chicken Skewers and Sweet Potatoes for the Grill (and plenty of Red Stripe!) for a fabulous Caribbean dinner. We used the sauce from the sweet potatoes to dip the plantains! It worked out well, but any sweet/savory salsa or sauce would make a great accompaniment. Thank you for posting!
