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)
I made the sauce to pour over drums and rice (because I didn't have breast on hand, and we are Gluten Free). The sauce was excellent. I didn't have nutmeg, so I added ginger instead of cinnamon and nutmeg. Still excellent, gave it a very tropical Pacific Islands flavor. I think it would even bee good with yellow curry. Great idea. - 03 Aug 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
