Chicken and Peas Stew


So we finally bought a house, the search is over and I’m super excited. It was a very frustrating process but it is now over. Now all that’s left to do is wait until we move. Can’t wait.

It was an extremely busy and hectic week so this weekend I just want to rest, but we still need to eat. So on days like this I go back to my easy recipes and this is one of them.

This is a Romanian dish that is a staple in our house. I learned how to make this from my mother, and this is probably one of the first dishes I made when I moved out on my own. It is also one of my favorite dishes, because I just love peas, they’re nice and sweet and just delicious, and not to mention this dish is very easy to make and you can literally do it in less than half an hour and voila, dinner is made.

    The ingredients list says tomato sauce but the instructions say tomato paste. Which should it be? I’m thinking paste but just want to be sure.
