Expert Tips

You can use whatever sauce you prefer.

Patacones or tostones are one of the dishes I miss most from my country. I love all the recipes with green plantain, especially when they're prepared as patacones. Fortunately, growing up in a country with a great variety of fruits and vegetables, the plantain was a staple in our kitchen. Because it's so versatile, I learned many ways to prepare it and tons of recipes that also happen to be very simple. Once I came to live in this country, I continued using plantains in my dishes, including those I use for American celebrations. These chicken patacones with pink sauce make for a wonderful appetizer.

When the time comes to flatten the plantain, you can use plastic bags between the pataconera and the plantain to avoid sticking. If you don’t have a pataconera you can flatten between two cutting boards.

Directions

  • 1 Put the oil in a deep frying pan.
  • 2 To peel the plantain cut in half along the middle horizontally then cut down vertically and remove the peel.
  • 3 Fry the plantain halves until they start to brown a little. Remove from the pan and use a pataconera or tortillera to carefully flatten them out so as not to break them. Once flattened, fry again until crunchy. Remove from the oil, salt to taste and leave on paper towels to remove excess oil.
  • 4 Mix the ketchup and mayonnaise in a separate bowl to make the pink sauce.
  • 5 Place the patacones in a plate and add a slice of cheese, a teaspoon of the sauce, a tablespoon of chicken and a little more sauce. Repeat these steps with each patacon.
