Recipe by Tatiana
"My grandmother's recipe. It's delicious and can be made with or without meat. It's also very versatile. Here I am using chicken, however you can use brisket, pigtail, oxtail, the list is endless."

scotch bonnet chile pepper
bone-in chicken pieces, such as breasts, thighs, and drumsticks
skinless, bone-in chicken breast halves - cut in half
onion, finely chopped
uncooked long-grain white rice
1 (14 ounce) can
1 (15 ounce) can
black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
green onions, coarsely chopped
cabbage, cored and cut into large chunks
salt and pepper to taste
This turned out so good although i didnt use the cabbage and I used Uncle Ben Rice. Thanks
I added more and different kinds of bean, i.e chick peas. Great tasting and it lasted for days.
Great variation on beans on rice. I had 1/2 a can of coconut milk and cabbage to use up which is how I found this recipe. I'm only one person who is trying to eat more meatless meals, so I made a half recipe (my 1/2 can of coconut milk remember) except I left out the scotch bonnet pepper, the chicken and used the whole can of black-eyed peas for a 1/2 recipe. The coconut milk added that little something extra and the cabbage was just a hint. If you also swapped out chicken broth for veggie broth this would make a yummy vegan dinner.
Excellent but doesnt need chicken or cabbage. Add corned beef and pig tail.
This recipe came out very good. My family raved over it and told me to "save the recipe" so I can make it again. I made it without the chicken or cabbage (served carribean chicken and the cabbage on the side)otherwise followed everything else exactly as stated and the flavor was wonderful. Thanks for posting Tatiana.
