Chicken and Pea Medley

Chicken and Pea Medley

Today, we’re going to try something different. I’ve had some recipes sitting around that I’d like to share. I going to start with a good one for you this morning. This is my version of a similar recipe from a book called Celebrate the Jewish Holidays by Racheli Morris (click on this link to buy the book on Amazon). The book is intended to show great recipes for Jewish holidays, but anybody can enjoy this recipe. This is a really good recipe involving Chicken, Peas and Spices. This recipe will feed 3-4 people.

Note: It’s best to completely read this recipe before attempting, just to make sure you understand all the steps.

  15. Once chicken is cooked through, put in rest of spices, and let the pot sit for 10 minutes to soak up the flavor of the spices.


  • To serve as a stew, keep the contents in the broth and serve it that way.
  • Drain the broth and liquid to serve as a plate with boiled potatoes or rice.
  • To make this vegan, substitute chicken for a comparable protein, such Gardien Chick’n Breast and Osem Consomme for the broth.
  • This recipe is also great for crockpots, just let the ingredients cook the ingredients together while at work and serve as a stew.
