Pulled Marinaded Chicken, Cajun Baked Potato/Plantains, and Garlic Bread


Holy Cow! That's one long title!

But I wanted to capture as much as I could about what this succulent dinner was all about. And do I mean succulent! The chicken turned out so moist, so juicy, so jam-packed full of flavor (even though it looks fairly bland) that succulent hardly begins to describe it.

And the garlic bread! Mmm light, savory garlic bread. The exact same kind that came with the Complete Veggie Dinner.

Paired with plantains (above) and cajun baked potato (below).

So follow along below to find out how to create succulent chicken yourself - a healthy poultry experience everyone will enjoy!

2 chicken breasts
2 handfuls of baby carrots or 1 carrot, diced
handful of chives, chopped
2 green onions, diced
1 plantain
1 potato
garlic bread
suggested seasonings: soy sauce, garlic, hoisin sauce, black pepper, red pepper, or oyster sauce


1. Boil chicken until full cooked. Shred chicken with two forks or knives or just pull apart with hands. Simmer in liquid seasoning sauce (add some water as well) with carrots until chicken is juicy and flavorful. Toss in green onions for a couple minutes as well.
2. Bake a plantain and potato as desired. Chop up plantain and slit open the potato, sprinkling cajun seasoning and chives on top.
3. Make garlic bread. Yum!


  1. Mhm, yum! I just had my dinner but you've got me all hungry again! So simple and delicious. And you get massive brownie points because I love plaintain and garlic bread! Yum, yum, yum!

  2. I'm so glad you liked it. Aren't plantains the greatest thing since sliced (garlic) bread? Always amazing.
