4 chicken breast halves
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 lemon, cut in half
1/4 cup olive oil
1 onion, cut in chunks
1 green pepper, cut in chunks
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
2/3 cup chicken broth, warmed
1 can (20 ounce size) pineapple chunks, drained
2 firm bananas, cut in chunks
2 salad tomatoes, cut in wedges


Squeeze lemon juice over chicken and let sit while oil heats.

In large Dutch oven, place olive oil and heat over medium high temperature. Add chicken, skin side down, and cook until brown, about 6 minutes.

Turn chicken and reduce heat to medium. Place onion and green pepper on top of chicken; cook about 10 minutes longer.

Turn chicken, place on top of vegetables, sprinkle with salt, pepper and cilantro. Pour chicken broth and wine over all and simmer, uncovered, about 10 minutes.

Add pineapple, bananas and tomatoes; heat through about 5 minutes. Serve hot with rice.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating

Quite a different recipe! The bananas and pineapple mixed with onion and green pepper sounded strange. But the flavors melded together perfectly. The fresh cilantro tied it all together. We used boneless, skinless chicken so we reduced the cooking time a little.
