1 (14 ounce) can
sweetened condensed milk
very firm bananas, halved lengthwise
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
kiwi, peeled and sliced for garnish
I have read all the reviews for this recipe, so here's a quick summary, with a few of my own notes: Reduce amt of chicken (submitter must have made a typo), use 1/2 cream of coconut and 1/2 coconut milk in lieu of condensed milk, add coconut flakes to the cornflake mixture (may also use panko bread crumbs). Substitute pineapple juice instead of lemon juice (it's the perfect compliment) and add the juice directly to melted butter. Last but not least, I personally recommend using plantains in lieu of bananas - you're guaranteed not to have mushy results as some reviewers have reported. Frozen plantains are available in your grocer's freezer and may be added to the chicken 1/2 through the allotted baking time. If you think it sounds like an interesting flavor combination -- I believe with the above tweaks it's truly 5-stars!
Made this dish for my family tonight. Messy to make and was just not my thing I guess. I was confused with the bananas and the cereal. Was wondering if the amounts of the chicken was right...
Interesting tastes serving chicken with bananas! It tasted great! The only drawbacks were that it messed up a lot of dishes and portions were off.
Next time I make it, I'll use only 3 lbs of chicken, and I'll put the ingredients straight into the baking dishes when preparing them.
My family loved the taste. I might use crushed macadamia nuts instead of corn flakes next time.
Overall, it's a keeper!
This recipe was great. It may very well be my new favorite food. I modified it a little - instead of sweetened condensed milk, I mixed half sweetened condensed milk and half cream of coconut (like the kind you use to make pina colada). It turned out fabulous. Served this with sweet german wine. Yummy. I LOVE the bananas. I think that the baked bananas would make a great desert with ice cream!!!
This recipe was soooo good. The bananas were so incredibly sweet, I was asked to make them on future occasions as a side dish! Who ever would have guessed of putting bananas with chicken and serving them for dinner? Anyway, the combination was wonderful. Thanks for the recipe. I will definately make it again.
This dish was a bit of a disappointment. The chicken turned out to be fairly bland. The bananas tasted good, but were unappealing because they got pretty black on the bottom.
Very good. Bananas had strange texture, but it tasted great!
The chicken tasted really originally and I liked the unique blend of flavors in it!!
But I got disappointed by the bananas - they got really soft and buttery and I
have to admit I prefer regular baked bananas. But maybe my fault was putting
both chicken and bananas in the same dish from the very start, instead of
following the recipe step by step? Anyway, this is a nice combination!!
