View Full Version : Flying Jacob??
10-15-2002, 08:20 PM
Greetings! I'm new to this forum and am looking forward to learning some great recipes!
It occurs to me that y'all might be able to help me find a recipe!
I recall there was a chicken dish that I tried several years ago while visiting Sweden that was very good. I believe it was called "Flying Jacob." It contained chicken breasts, peanuts, bananas, bacon, all in a cream-type sauce. Has anyone ever heard of this? Better yet, does anyone have a recipe?? I tried to make this once based on my memories but it was a disaster.
Thanks in advance! :D

Hi - Welcome to the Board !
I did a seach on Google for "Flying Jacob" and found a number of recipes. Here is one to start you off on the adventure .
Flying Jacob (Flygande Jakob)
1-1½ lb. cooked chicken meat (pork fillet can be substituted)
1 cup of whipping cream
1 cup of sour cream
½ cup chili sauce
2 bananas, sliced
1 package of bacon, fried crispy and broken into small pieces
½ cup of salted peanuts
Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Divide the chicken into bite size pieces. Layer the chicken and banana
slices in the bottom of a buttered ovenproof dish. Whip the cream until
soft peaks form. Add the sour cream and chili sauce to the whipped
cream, mixing gently. Spoon the sauce over the meat and bananas. Bake in
the oven about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the bacon and
peanuts on the top. Serve with rice and salad.

I've never had this dish, but I would substitute low fat sour cream, maybe someone else will help with other suggestions. Turkey bacon would be another obvious choice, but I don't know how it would affect the end taste results. I'm sure you can use something instead of the whipping cream, but I'm not sure what is best.
Welcome and hope you enjoy our BB!
