    This was really good! I liked the combination of unusual ingredients (bananas and chicken??). I couldn’t find a banana pepper so used a yellow bell pepper instead. I will surely fix this one again.

    The recipe was very good. I enjoyed the different tastes — bananas, pineapples and sweet potatoes. Thanks

    I thought this was a great meal, sweet potatoes and chicken together with just a little bit of spice tasted so good. I will definately make this one again.

    I plan on making this, but instead of regular bananas, a more traditional “bajan” (caribean;Barbados)version, you should use plantains, look just like bananas only larger and darker in colour.

    I have made a meal from this site every night for the past four nights and they have all been great. We had this one tonight and will make it for our folks this weekend. I did boil the chicken prior to the meal and it turned out great, less work too. I love this site, can’t wait to try another one tomorrow. I had rotator cuff surgery a month ago and have been climbing the walls. My wife is sssoooooo happy I found this site!!!

    I’ve been making this for a few years. We love it. I use a small can of crushed pineapple w/juice instead of just the juice. I use jarred banana peppers and add a few tablespoons of pepper juice for extra kick. Sometimes I also add coconut. I make this on a cold winter night to help me feel like I’m in the Caribbean.
