Vegetables are used in abundance throughout the Greek cuisine and always only seasonal vegetables. The Greeks will still only use fruit and vegetables in season rather than using imported products out of season as they are never as tasty. This way their meals are rotated throughout the year as meals become popular at the times of the year that the particular ingredients are in season.
A very healthy approach to eating!
Chicken with peas is traditionally made using fresh peas, however you can use frozen peas for convenience, although it wont have quite the same fresh flavour. If using frozen, reduce the quantity to about 700 - 800g.
2 small chickens
Clean the chickens inside and out and chop into 4 portions each chicken.
Add the finely chopped onions and saute too.
Leave to simmer, covered, on fairly low heat for about 30 minutes.
Note: Traditionally the Greeks add the giblets (finely chopped) to saute with the onions, for taste, that is for you to add or omit to your preference.
