Ingredients

To make these delectable Teriyaki Chicken Tostones, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 2 large green plantains
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Sesame seeds and green onions for garnish

Note: All measurements are provided in both metric and imperial systems for your convenience.

Directions

  1. Start by peeling the plantains and cutting them into thick slices. Heat vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat and fry the plantain slices until golden brown and crispy. Remove them from the pan and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess oil.

  2. Slice the chicken breasts into thin strips. In a mixing bowl, combine soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, minced garlic, and grated ginger to make the teriyaki sauce. Reserve a small amount of sauce for later.

  3. Heat a little oil in a separate frying pan over medium heat and add the chicken strips. Cook until they are browned and cooked through. Pour the teriyaki sauce over the chicken and let it simmer for a few minutes until the sauce thickens.

  4. Dissolve cornstarch in a small amount of water and add it to the teriyaki sauce, stirring continuously until it thickens to your desired consistency.

  5. Take the fried plantain slices (tostones) and using a heavy object, like the bottom of a glass or a wooden press, press down on each slice to flatten them slightly. Return the flattened tostones to the frying pan and fry them again for about a minute on each side until they are golden and crispy.

  6. Place the crispy tostones on a serving platter and top each one with a slice of teriyaki chicken. Drizzle some of the reserved teriyaki sauce over the tostones and garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.

Notes/Tips

  • Plantains should be unripe (green) to achieve the desired crispiness. Ripe plantains, which are yellow or black, will result in a softer texture.
  • Adjust the amount of honey and soy sauce in the teriyaki sauce to suit your taste preferences. Add more honey for a sweeter flavor or more soy sauce for a saltier taste.
  • Experiment with additional toppings such as diced pineapple, shredded cheese, or sliced avocado to add an extra layer of flavor to your tostones.
