Stew Peas

Stew peas is a very popular Jamaican dish. For those of you who love this dish but is not sure how to prepare it, just follow the following recipe and you can’t go wrong.  For those who don’t eat pork or may be on a low salt diet, this recipe uses an alternative to salted me.

1 lb chicken parts (cut up)

1 pt. red peas

2 stalk scallion

sprig thyme

1 pk. coconut milk

1 cup flour

2 cloves garlic

1 whole green scotch bonnet pepper

1 tsp chicken seasoning

1 tbsp all purpose seasoning

salt  if needed

Method

2      Season chicken with chicken seasoning and allow to marinate for at least half-an-hour

4      In frying pan brown chicken to a deep brown colour

5      When peas is cooked add coconut milk, chicken, scallion, thyme and scotch bonnet pepper
