You can’t go wrong with the combination of chicken and plantain in one-pot! In fact, in my country, Cameroon, one of the most valued meals served in high-class restaurants is Poulet DG, a meal involving chicken, plantains and vegetables. It is such a delicious meal that anyone who tastes it always falls in love right from the first bite!
Thanks to the luscious combination of chicken and plantain. So… let’s talk about this one-pot chicken and plantain delight.
The chicken is first seared together with garlic and onions then cooked in a flavorful sauce till done. Then semi-ripe plantains are added to the chicken. Once the plantains cook through your meal is ready! Easy peasy, right? Plus all you need is one-pot to make this hearty recipe. I love one-pot meals because you know, that means only one-pot for me to wash!
For the longest time, I have been thinking of making a meal with chicken and plantains that is NOT the iconic Poulet DG. And I think I just nailed this one!
You need a few simple ingredients: plantains, chicken, oil, onions, garlic, curry powder, bay leaves, seasoning cubes, coconut milk, salt and white pepper!
Searing the chicken at the start gives it some color and a whole lot of flavor!
Then you make this one-pot wonder happen! Oh the combination of chicken and plantains!
It is savory, garlicky, creamy, filled with flavors from the chicken and onions, with some sweetness from the plantains. My mouth waters as I describe this. It is just so tasty! And incredibly easy to make! Hope you enjoy this recipe, friends!
