About this recipe: Chicken breasts are stuffed with slices of cinnamon-spiced papaya, then pan-seared before being baked to perfection. The chicken is served with freshly cooked basmati rice and a sweet and fruity pineapple sauce.
Absolutely delish! We all loved it! I was out of nutmeg so I used allspice which gave it a nice "apple pie" flavour. The only complaint is the chicken is really difficult to cook after breading. I think next time I'll brown the chicken first and then immediately bread to see if that works better. - 09 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is right out of any classic Cuban cookbook. The mixture of sweet and spicy is wonderful. If you like this recipe, I urge you to look into Cuban cooking. Its not firey hot like the rest of Carribean cooking and the flavors are fantastic. - 19 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
What a super yummy dish! I used butter instead of margarine, crushed red pepper flakes instead of cayenne and regular rice instead of basmati. Other than these minor changes I followed the recipe. It was very easy (I did use toothpicks to pin the chicken breasts shut). It was a longer process than a normal dinner but worth it. Full of wonderful flavors, I'm looking forward to leftovers! - 11 Dec 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
