More About This Recipe

  • Plantains might look like oversized bananas, but their flavor and use is totally different.

    They are actually a banana variety, but plantains are often eaten while they are still green – and cooked. So the starchy fruit is perfect for savory applications from frying to boiling.

    Plantains also make fabulous chips. Yes, that’s right. Forget the potatoes for your next party and try baking up a batch or two of plantain chips. Baked Barbecue Plantain Chips are a great place to start.

    The green, unripe plantains are sliced thinly and then laid out in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet. I prefer nonstick foil, since it’s easy and ensures that you won’t be fighting the food to flip it. But you could also use parchment for the same effect.

    Then spray the plantains with olive oil cooking spray and sprinkle them with barbecue seasoning. You can find barbecue seasoning in the herb/spice aisle of the grocery store.

    Finally, bake them for about 15 minutes per side until they get golden at the edges. Once they cool a bit, you have crispy, delicious Baked Barbecue Plantains – perfect for a party snack.
