Flying Jacob, ya'll!

Since I recall freaking a few of you out when I said banana is a popular pizza topping in Sweden, I figured I would share the recipe we used for tonight's classic 70's Swedish dish: flygande Jakob (flying Jacob)!

It was invented by a Swedish man named jakobsson who worked in the air freight industry - hence "flying Jacob". The recipe was published in a popular cooking magazine in 1976 and includes bacon, but we don't eat bacon so here's what we did:

Flygande Jakob (serves 4)

1-2 rotisserie chicken (depends on how much you prefer, we used 1)
3 or more bananas
3 dl double cream
1 dl chili sauce (think Heinz, ketchupy)
1 dl salted peanuts

1. Set oven to 225 degrees celsius.

2. Strip the chicken-meat, cut into small pieces and put in an oven pan. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Peel the bananas and slice them into 'coins' (don't go too thin though). Put on top of the chicken.

4. Whip the cream and mix the chili sauce into the cream. Yes, it should be that pink! :)

5. Spread the cream and chili mix over the chicken and banana, kind of like a cake. Bake in oven about 20 minutes.

6. Spread peanuts over the baked chicken.

Serve with a salad and boiled rice. YUM!
