Chicken Tostones Recipe

Chicken and plantain chips are often served together. They are called chicken tostones, and they complement each other exceptionally well in terms of flavor and texture. Tostones plantain chips are savory, crispy, and slightly sweet, providing a nice contrast to the texture of chicken. Additionally, the natural sweetness of the plantains can balance out the saltiness of the chicken, making for a more balanced and enjoyable flavor experience.

  • Mix the spices together in a small mixing bowl.
  • Place the chicken breast on the baking sheet and rub the spice mixture onto both sides of the chicken, making sure to coat them evenly.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the seasoned chicken breasts to the pan.
  • Cook the chicken for about 6 to 8 minutes on each side. Check the internal temperature with a meat thermometer, which should read at least 165°F (74°C) to ensure the chicken is fully cooked. Once the chicken is cooked through, the juices will run clear.
