  • skillet
  • soup pot
  • bamboo spatula


  • 18 oz chicken thighs I prefer boneless thighs but any part is good
  • 28 oz canned peas
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 8 oz water
  • 14 oz canned tomatoes
  • 2 carrots grated
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • chopped parsley or dill optional


  • Cut the thighs in small to medium cubes. Put them in a deep pan or pot with a little oil (2-3 tablespoons), season with salt and pepper, and lightly fry. Remove from pan when slightly golden.
  • In a skillet add oil, onions, carrots, pepper and salt and saute until the onions have softened, 2-3 minutes
  • Put the chicken, bell peppers and the saute onions and carrots in a large soup pot and add water to cover.
  • Brig to boil then simmer for 15 minutes. Add the canned tomatoes, crushed with a fork and simmer with the lid on for 5 more minutes. (Note: you may need to simmer longer; it depends on how firm your peas are and how fresh and young your chicken meat is).
  • Turn the heat off and add chopped parsley or dill (or both). Sprinkle chili pepper flakes if you like a spicy dish.
  • Serve with pickled green tomatoes or pickled cucumbers.
