Tropical Chicken Bake

Larisa Calloway


This one was very interesting...the bananas seemed a bit weird to put in here, but it ended up working much better than I expected. Everyone had seconds, and it was pretty simple to put together. The only time consuming part was getting the sweet potatoes ready and cooked. use canned yams to save time. totally worth trying, we'll definitely have it again :) On a side note, next time I think I'll throw in some brown rice to serve it over.
