Chicken, Peas, and Rice

That's a meal Caribbean style. On Monday night Cornelius came over to fix a meal like he would eat in St. Vincent. It was simple, delicious, and it made the whole apartment smell yummy! He had cooked this for Jay before, and Jay was dying for me to try it.

So easy to make, all you need are the following ingredients.
  • Long grain rice
  • Lentils
  • Chicken
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Salt, pepper, red pepper flakes to season
I also had the pleasure of sitting on the couch and watching television while the guys did it all!

Ingredients out and ready. The Americans got the rice...think we have enough?!

Jay getting pointers so he can make it again...we probably only have enough rice to make it 50 more times!

Step one complete. Ready to boil the onions, garlic, lentils, and chicken until the peas "pop".


Time to add the rice. Once the rice is cooked and the water absorbed, you have...

Mmmmm. A little taste of the Caribbean. Thanks, Cornelius!

Tot ziens!
