This is a favourite of mine because it is fairly unique (banana and chicken - come on), and it is always a hit with my guests. I get plenty of positive feedback from this dish (including fussy kids that won't eat anything but like this dish), but the best feedback I get is watching people go back for seconds and then telling me that they are going to have a go at cooking the dish themselves.

Believe it or not I actually discovered this recipe on a can of carnation milk!
