It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Yes! Its Christmas time! Can you hear my excitement with all my exclamation points!!!
I am the world’s biggest Christmas fanatic. The obsession gets worse and worse every year. I am not afraid to say it. I’m kind of not in denial at all. I mean seriously, any reason I can find to hang out with family and friends and cook all day? Count me in. I am so privileged to have been able to decorate two Christmas trees this year. Therefore, I feel I deserve a Christmas tree decorating award and no I will NOT post pictures of them, I’m not sure you’ll want to see them, like at all hehe. The lights + Christmas trees + love + Christmas music = happiness for me.
Moving along to this mouth watering recipe, if I haven’t said this before well now you’ll know that my mom is from Puerto Rico. A lot of my recipes basically come from there. I learned this recipe from my mother dearest. She is pretty awesome (Just had to throw that in there). It’s a fried plantain formed into a cup filled with chicken and delicious spices. Why is it so mouth watering? You get the full package with this recipe. You get the crunchiness of the fried plantain and you get the delicious spices from the savory sauce of the chicken making a beautiful explosion of flavor in your mouth. Can you picture it in your mind now? That’s what I was aiming for.
This dish is fun to make with family and friends. While one fry’s, the other mashes the plantain into a cup. Pretty cool huh? I know. I tried my best to show the process step by step. If for whatever reason you get confused please let me know and I will help you out.
I want to take time to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! I hope everyone can spend this very special time with your loved ones. Once again thank you for all of your support and love! The Cook It Girl family is growing and it’s the best Christmas gift a girl can ever ask for. Merry Christmas!!!!!
