CHICKEN AND PLANTAIN FRITTATA



 A frittata is an egg based italian dish similar to an omelette. Once you have some eggs and vegetables. Your frittata is ready. I have seen many recipes of plantain and egg frittata but they all cook with sausages. I didn't want to cook for my family the sausage lovers without eating myself, so I waited and today, I shredded some
chicken, got some eggs and peppers and behold! Here is mine, cooked with chicken shreds, eggs and peppers.
Sorry I skipped the curry, thyme, garlic and many other ingredients because when I cook some foods for my lazy taste buds, the fewer the ingredients, the better the taste of the food. 

INGREDIENTS:
2 ripe plantains
1/2 green bell pepper
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 yellow bell pepper
1 seasoning cube
2 small sized red onion
Salt
5 eggs
1 cup shredded chicken (I shred the chicken my self by deboning and cutting, you can use a cup of already shredded chicken from the shop)
1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil for stir fry
Another half teaspoon vegetable oil for the frittata.

DIRECTION:

First wash and peel the plantain, then cut into desired shapes, fry in hot oil till brown and set aside. I used cookie cutter to achieve this shape. With a knife, tear the peeled plantain open from top to  down, place on a flat surface and press with the cookie cutter.

1. For the peppers, you'll need just a little half of each for the cooking. 

2. Dice the onion and peppers, and stir fry with half a seasoning cube till fragrant.

3. Add chicken and a little salt, then continue to stir fry till chicken changes colour.

4. Once chicken is cooked, do not over cook, just set it aside and wait for later.

5. Break the eggs into a bowl, shred a few pieces of the peppers, dice or cut another small onion rings in there.



6. Whisk the eggs and peppers with the remaining half seasoning cube. Add the stir fried chicken to the eggs and mix well.

7. Grease your pan or pot with oil and let it heat a bit.

8. Pour in the eggs, vegetable and chicken mixture.

9. Place the fried plantains on the eggs and cover with a lid.


 10. Reduce the heat to low and let it cook till the egg firms.

11. Slice and enjoy with a chill drink.
