Preparation mode:

1/ Use pairing knife to peel off the hard cover of banana inflorescence. Slice them into small pieces. One small little trick to prevent banana flower from being blackened is to soak them in cold water added with brine water + lime juice for 20 minutes at least. After that set them aside to drain off.

2/ Beware of using breast or thigh of chicken. They would ramp up your favor compared to other components. Rinse them with water, add into 1/2tsp. of salt and cook them through for 15-20minutes over a medium heat. Remove them from the heat and set aside. When they are cooler, shred them into thin and fine threads.
