Jamaican style rice & peas with honey garlic chicken

Jamaican style rice & peas with honey garlic chicken

Slow cooked chicken all day mmm what a smell that was!
Nothing fancy with the drumsticks simply bought 2 jars of VH Honey Garlic sauce and put it all in a slow cooker and set it on high for 4-5 hours.

Recipe for Jamaican Rice & Peas:


1/4 Cup Gungo Peas or Black Eyed peas or Red Kidney Beans
2 Cup of cold water
2 Cloves of Garlic
2 Salks Green onion
3-5 sprigs of fresh Thyme
2 cups Rice
2 cups of Coconut Milk

- Wash the peas and soak in 2 cups of cold water
-Pour the peas and water into a pot with the coconut milk and garlic, and bring to a boil.
-Cook peas until tender adding more water if necessary
-Once teh peas are cook add slat to taste, whole black peppercorns, fresh sprigs of thyme and green onion.
-Allow the ingredients to simmer in the pot with the peas.
-Add the rice to the pot and water or coconut milk if necessary.
-Use a fork to mix all the ingredients together.
-Cook on low until rice is cooked (aprox 20 mins)

If you choose to use canned beans/peas... Wash the brine from the canned ingredients. Add all of the ingredients to a pot and bring a boil for 10 mins. Reduce heat and simmer approximately 10 more minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving with Jerk Chicken or in this case honey garlic wings :)
