Hello friends and fellow foodies!!

Today I bring you a true marvel of Neo-Dominican Cuisine. A delicious, beautiful and creative finger food (I did not invent it, this is just my version) that tastes very much Dominican, so Caribbean, so can almost feel the sea wind on your face!

  1. Cook your chicken breasts however you prefer: steam it, roasted it, pan fry it or just boil it.
  2. Grind the breasts and pan fry with some butter while adding the other ingredients, spices and seasonings. Cook until they are tender (when the peppers are tender it’s probably ready) Take out, add the mayonnaise and set apart.
  3. Prepare the plantains as if making tostones and fry them for the first time until crunchy. Take out them and allow them to cool a little and instead of squashing them with the regular crusher or what you use to squash them regularly use the lemon squeezer, which will give them a basket shape. Take them again to the oil and fry again, which will give them the characteristic consistency and crunchiness of the tostones.
  4. Stuff with the chicken and serve.

    Que bueno! These baskets look amazing!! I was introduced to plantains by my friends in college who were Trinidadian and Grenadian. One was my boyfriend at the time and his mother would send them in his care baskets home. I share these jewels with my family today. I can't wait to try this recipe.!
