"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."

  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!

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. Flambee...

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 rec...

I thought it was pretty good, my husband said it wasn't his thing. I served it with coconut rice, which was was good with it. The bananas become kinda mushy, and the dish is sweet, so if you're ...
