Chicken and peas in tomato sauce

  • 1 whole chicken cut into 8 pieces
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 liter chicken stock
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 cinammon stick
  • ½ kilo peas
  • Salt pepper
  • 4 fresh radishes



  • Wash and dry the chicken well.
  • Heat a deep pot and add oil. Make sure the oil is hot before continuing to the next step.
  • Sauté the chicken pieces until all sides appear to be a golden brown colour.
  • Remove the chicken and most of the oil from the pot (leave only a few tablespoons of oil).
  • Sauté the onion in the oil, add the chicken to this and cover it with all the chicken stock, tomato paste, bay leaves, cinnamon, peas, and salt and pepper.
  • Cook on medium heat for about 1 hour or until chicken and peas are cooked through.
  • If during the whole cooking process the peas or chicken seem dry add extra water to the pot.
  • As soon as the meal is ready serve it with fresh radishes as a side.
