What’s in the Fridge – Gonna Make Sum Chicken


I am feeling a little Caribbean, a little Latin based on all the videos on the site – www.everydayguy.tv. Need to make something to eat. Let’s see – What’s in the Fridge?

Chicken Breast – Skinless
Carrots (2 or 3)
Apples (2 or 3)
Ginger (1 tablespoon sliced)


I also grab some Basil, Thyme and Chives from the garden.

One Spanish Onion – Chop save ¼ for the string beans.
Garlic (happens to be paste)
Two Slightly (Maduro) Yellow Plantains (Platanos).

One pack of French Cut String Beans.

Heat a Frying Pan that you can cover and place in the oven. Happen to have one available. Preheat Oven to 350.

Add Olive Oil. Chop Onion, Apples, Carrots and Plantains (Platanos)
Season Chicken Breast with salt, pepper. Place in pan on high heat. Let them begin to brown. After 2-4 minutes. Add the Onions, Apples, Carrots, Ginger, Platanos and Ginger. You can also add the herbs at this point (chop them slightly first).

Now – I held back – the secret a cup of dark rum and one cup of water (or I used apple juice). Had some Captain Morgan’s available.

You can turn your chicken breast and scrape the pan to help loosen up some of the good stuff (caramelized seasoning).

Cover – place in the oven 30-45 minutes.

Don’t touch. After 30 minutes. The bottom should be golden brown, everything almost done. Flip the breast again. Spoon the liquid (broth) over the chicken. Turn up oven to broil – 500! Add two – three pads of butter (yeah butter). We will want to keep basting the chicken for about 5-10 minutes.

Okay now the beans, I use a regular frying skillet – fill it with water. And bring it to a boil (with one bay leaf). Unpack the green beans. Place in the boiling water. Add salt, pepper, tablespoon of garlic paste. Let cook in the boiling water for 3 minutes.

Now take the beans off the heat / strain. (Don’t forget to baste the chicken). Place pan back on high heat – add olive oil. Now sliced remaining onions, let them get translucent.
Add beans back to the pan. Toss for 3-5 minutes. (Alternating while basting the chicken).

I found a tomato (sliced it).

Now I am ready to plate.
