4 grilled chickens


White pepper

1 teaspoon Italien salad spice

4 – 5 bananas

2 cups whipping cream

1 cup chili sauce of ketchup type

2 packets bacon

 ½ cup salted peanuts

Debone the chicken and put the pieces in a greased, oven-proof dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper according to taste. Sprinkle the salad spice mix on top.

Peel and cut the bananas lengthwise and across to get four pieces of each. Place on top of the chicken.

Whip the cream and mix in the chili sauce. Spread the mix on top of the chicken and the banana.

Bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 437 degrees.

In the meantime, cut the bacon into small pieces and fry until crisp.

Sprinkle peanuts and bacon bits over the finished dish.

This is a dish from the 1980’s, that was very popular in Sweden. It is a translation of a classic recipe and I’m still curious why it was necessary to mention that the chicken should be baked ‘in the oven’.

It is not a recipe entirely in my tradition of cooking as it uses already grilled chickens. But if you don’t want to feel totally lazy, and a tad more genuine, you can of course behead, pluck, and grill the chickens yourself.
