I lived on St. Lucia for 3 1/2 years and this is SO Caribbean!!! If we were there we wouldn't buy "browning" we would make it by crystalizing raw sugar... Recipe is very native to the Islands.

I have lived in St.Kitts for most of my life and a true island cook-up includes some pork such as pig, tail or pig snout and has in not just chicken wings but chicken necks and instead of pigeon peas we use either lentils or kidney beans. But it truly is an island dish best enjoyed with a local drink.

I made this and my Bahamian husband said it was really good. I didn't have any browning sauce so I added a tablespoon of brown sugar. I also didn't have any white rice so I used a large bag of yellow rice mix. No problem, it was delicious. My husband was impressed I used the pigeon peas:). Our kids loved it too. This is a great, one-pot, quick and easy dinner option.

This was incredibly bland as listed. Definitely needs tweaking, but has potential.
