      Passed the test!!! - my DH (dear hubby) is from Uganda and generally likes my American Soul Food cooking. Yet, you can always tell he misses his native dishes by the way he excitedly licks the plate clean when we eat at his sister's house. Its a battle to keep both him and the kids happy about the same meal so I gave this a try. NAILED IT! I changed the recipe a little....seasoned the chicken with adobo, cumin, and pepper, and left the skin on. I doubled the plantains and made sure they were ripe. DH and the kids ask for this so much that I make a batch every week and leave it in the fridge to be picked on.

      excellent recipe! I made this with one cut up chicken, one green plantain, 4 cut up potatoes,1 large onion, added slice carrots and 1 can tomatoes. I sprinkled the whole thing with everglades all purpose seasoning ( instead of salt and pepper). I baked it all in a clay pot ( 375F x 2 hours). Made for ZW7
