Expert Tips

Make extra servings of this delicious cilantro sauce and refrigerate to use as a salad dressing or for other dishes.

Directions

  • 1 Poach the chicken breast in enough salted water. When the chicken is completely cooked, remove from heat and allow to cool a bit, then shred.
  • 2 Heat the butter in a pan and sauté the chopped tomato. Add the garlic and sauté until the tomato is soft. Set aside.
  • 3 Peel the plantains and cut them into thick slices.
  • 4 Heat the oil and place the plantain slices in it. Fry plantains over low heat for a few minutes, until soft, and remove from the pan.
  • 5 Flatten the slices with a plate or a rolling pin and place them back in the hot oil.
  • 6 Remove the plantains when they are golden brown on both sides and immediately sprinkle with salt.
  • 7 To make the cilantro sauce, process the rest of the ingredients in a blender and taste for seasoning. Add more salt if necessary.
  • 8 Top the fried plantains with the shredded chicken, the sautéed tomato, and lastly, with the cilantro sauce.
