world.chef's picture
Chicken with peas is a herbed chicken recipe cooked with thyme and lime juice. The love for fresh flavors led me to create this recipe and I serve it for both parties and family dinners on request. Served with garnished parsley, the chicken with peas is served with the stock and butter stock sauce.
  Broiler fryer chicken 9 Pound, cut into pieces (3 In Number, 3 Ounce Each)
  Lime juice 1 Tablespoon
  Freshly ground pepper To Taste
  Salt To Taste
  Soybean oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Shallot 1

  Dried thyme 1 Teaspoon
  Green hot pepper/3 dried italian pepper pods 1
  Chicken stock 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Fresh green peas 3 Pound, shelled
  Butter 2 Tablespoon

Season chicken with lime juice, salt, and pepper.
Heat oil in a Dutch oven and saute the chicken pieces until golden brown on all sides.
In a mortar, pound to a paste the shallot and garlic.
Add seasoning paste, thyme, green hot pepper, 1 cup stock, and peas to the chicken.
Reduce heat and simmer 25 minutes, or until chicken and peas are tender.
Remove chicken, peas, and hot pepper to a heated platter and keep hot.
