A Father’s Day Treat
Plantain is one of those foods that you can’t have enough off, especially if you like plantains like I do, I make plantains using all different types of recipes, I like them baked in the oven with cinnamon sugar, I like them fried, roasted, boiled etc! I choose to do it this way as I have cut out a lot of fried foods to at least 1-2 times a month and because of my love for plantains I will be grilling a lot over the summer.
I am currently in an apartment and don’t have access to an outdoor grill, so what I used here was my indoor griddle, the same griddle I use for pancakes, french toast etc! the plantains and the chicken came out perfect.
Chicken, I love chicken satay, so it was just a matter of time before I made it myself and off course it has to be made with some Caribbean love, so I added pineapple ,lime and orange juice to give it a little island flavor along with a hint of scotch bonnet pepper and chado beni.
But you can leave the pepper out of the recipe if you do not like spicy foods, but being Caribbean I just love me some spicy chicken, Oh Yeah!
My dad would have never eat anything by the name of Satay, but my hubby loves the vibrant flavor of this chicken.
The recipe may seem very long, but it’s actually a simple dish, plan it right and you will be out of the kitchen in a jiffy!
Wish my dad was still around physically, but he will always be in my heart.
I remember in growing up on fathers day , we (meaning my sisters and brothers) couldn’t wait to give my dad his gift, I always bought him a tie, a shirt , handkerchiefs and a couple pair of socks, I wanted to buy him so much more but could never afford it, I barely afforded the things I did buy him, but thanks to my weekly allowance which I saved for 2 months in order to buy him the things I did.. I really enjoyed shopping for my dad.. RIP in peace Dad! I love you then,I love you now and I will love you forever.
