Flying Jakob

Flying Jakob (Flygande Jakob)


This is an old favorite among kids and grown ups. Quick to make on a week night, or if you have the time, cook the chicken yourself. The combination of flavors is amazing, and I think it works best with white rice, but pasta is another option. Enjoy!


  • 1 rotisserie chicken, or pan fry 4 chicken things with salt and pepper
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 2 cups of heavy whipping cream
  • 4 tablespoons of chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon curry
  • 2 bananas
  • 1/2 cup salted peanuts
  • Salt and pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Cut the chicken meat into bite sizes, or cook in a pan until cooked through. Place in the cut up chicken into an oven safe pan.
