Plantains 2 Pound (2 Large Ripe Pieces)
Skinned boneless chicken breasts 2 Pound
Butter/Low cholesterol margarine 1 Tablespoon
Oil/Plus more if needed 2 Tablespoon
Minced shallots 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) (4 Pieces)
Dried thyme leaves 1/4 Teaspoon
Dry vermouth/Dry sherry 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Salt To Taste
Pepper To Taste


Peel the plantains and cut them into 1/2-inch slices on the diagonal.

Cut the chicken into 1-inch-thick chunks.

Heat the butter and oil in a large skillet, and saute the shallots until they are sizzling.

Add the plantains in one layer and fry them until golden on both sides.

Push the plantains to one side and add the chicken in one layer.

Over medium-high heat, brown the chicken on one side, turn, and sprinkle with thyme, salt, and pepper.

When the pieces are almost brown on the second side, add the wine, cover tightly, and lower the heat.

Cook about 10 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through but not dry.
