Tomato Starfruit Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 medium tomato, diced

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 chive, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onion

Directions

Tenderize the chicken breast by pounding flat with a mallet. Sprinkle thyme, cilantro, and pimientos over chicken breast. Arrange celery on top of chicken.

In a food processor, combine boiled dasheen and smoked herring until well mixed. Spread mixture over chicken breast. Arrange red onions and plantain slices over top. Roll up chicken breast into a pinwheel shape and secure with toothpicks. Coat with beaten egg and roll in shredded coconut.

Heat 2 inches of oil in a large, heavy Dutch oven to 350 degrees F.

Fry chicken until golden brown and cooked through. Remove toothpicks before using. Cut into slices when cool and serve with Tomato-Starfruit sauce.

Tomato Starfruit Sauce:

Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add all ingredients, except rum and bitters, and saute for approximately 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add rum and bitters. Cook until reduced and thickened. Serve with Breast of Chicken Santa Rosa.

Cook's Note
