Chicken with Guisantes (Canned Green Peas)

We love this dish so much, sometimes I cook this once or twice a month. Very easy to prepare and the kids just love this. If you don't like greenpeas that much, you can just add 2 cans.

Ingredients:
2 tbsps. Cooking Oil
2 tbsps. Garlic, chopped
1 medium White Onion, chopped coarsely
2 pcs. Tomato, chopped coarsely
3 tbsps. Patis (Fish Sauce)
½ Kilo Chicken, cut into serving pieces
4 cans Canned Green Peas (155 gms. each)
½ cup Water
4 medium Potatoes, cubed
Salt and Pepper to taste

Procedure:
1. Saute garlic in cooking oil until fragrant. Add onions and cook until translucent, then add tomato, saute for another 3-5 minutes.

2. Then add the chicken, stir well for a few minutes, till there are no blood visible in the chicken. Then add the fish sauce, mix well with the chicken and cover the pan and let simmer for 10 minutes, then add ½ cup water stir well, then add the cubed potatoes, then add the canned greenpeas including the liquid, let it simmer in low fire for 10-15 minutes or until tender.

3. Season with salt and pepper as needed. Serve with steamed white rice.


Note : For this dish, you have to use the canned greenpeas, not the frozen peas, the taste will not be the same, and the sauce will not be that great.

We made this tonight. My husband and I we're under the weather the whole 3 day weekend. We finally slept & woke up starving, but too late to eat out. Didn't have Fish Sauce so we used Soy sauce lite and didn't have cannned peas so we used Frozen Peas since neither of us felt like shoping and this was PHENOMINAL!!! *****
We can hardly wait to try it with the canned peas & fish sauce. This will become one of our goto recipes. Thank you so much for sharing.
