159 Solomon Islands – Papaya Chicken and Coconut Milk

159 Solomon Islands - Papaya Chicken and Coconut Milk

Papaya Chicken and Coconut Milk

This was way better than I thought it would be.  Not a lot of ingredients, but very good flavor.  The prep was super easy and the payoff was pretty darn good.  Of course how can you go wrong with sweet potato mash and fried plantains?  Delicious!


8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 3/4-inch cubes (I used thighs)

1 papaya, peeled, seeded and thinly sliced

1-3/4 cup coconut milk (canned, bottled or fresh)

1 onion, chopped

Olive oil for frying


In a frying pan, heat the olive oil and cook chicken cubes over high heat until they are almost cooked (about 5 minutes).

Add the chopped onion and cook until the onion becomes clear, about 5 minutes.

Add the papaya slices and cook for 5 more minutes.

Remove mixture from heat and add the coconut milk.

Serve alongside mashed sweet potatoes and fried plantains.
