My dad made this for me a while back and I loved it. Now, I found the recipe and he told me to submit it. Chicken, bananas, and coconut rum make one interesting, tasty, tropical dish. Great for Luau parties. Serve with steamed vegetables and rice.

Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat, and stir in the brown sugar. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, and toss with flour to coat. Add chicken and bananas to the skillet, and cook stirring occasionally until chicken is almost cooked through. Stir in the amaretto and rum, and heat through. Remove from the burner, and use a long match or lighter to flambe. Allow to burn until the alcohol cooks off and the flame goes out. Serve and enjoy!

I cut the brown sugar by 30%, the butter by 50%, and left out the flour, making it a bit healthier. Definitely wait to put the bananas into the pan. They do get mushy. I added walnuts (though macadamia nuts would have been good too) and a little bit of coconut shavings for texture and flavor. I also mixed half regular rum and half coconut rum as to offset the actual coconut shavings and not overpower the dish. I got the flambe to work, though it didn't last very long. It depends on the strength of the alcohol you're using. I continued heating it after the flambe to cook off the rest of the liquid and it worked out well. It was very good served over brown rice!

WAY TOO MUCH RUM!!! No crunch and too sweet. The flavors are right, just in the wrong proportions. Made the recipe to order once and I think that I got a buzz just readying the recipe. Flambeed it and it burned for no less than 5 minutes and it still was too rum-my. I will try to cut the sugar/butter/rum next time and base it more off of awesome Banana's Foster II recipe. The banana's will be cut chunkier and nuts should be added too to create some texture other than mush and chicken. 1/4 cup butter 2/3 cup dark brown sugar 3 1/2 tablespoons rum 1 1/2 teaspoons amaretto 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 3 bananas, peeled and sliced lengthwise and crosswise 1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

It's a very nice recipes for something out of the ordinary but I'm only disappointed since I couldn't flambe it (I don't know why but it seems like other people had that problem as well). I recommend this recipes for people who have a sweet tooth or if you like fruit currys.
