Mazăre cu pui – Chicken with peas

This used to be my favourite dish while I was 6-7 years old, and I stil love to make this simple but delicious dish.


  • 4 chicken legs
  • 700 g frozen peas
  • 1 large onion
  • chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons of tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped dill
  • 1 teaspoon of chopped thyme
  • 1 teaspoon of chopped rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon of chopped garlic
  • 2 teaspoons of sweet chili pepper
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil

Pre-heat the oven to 190 ℃. Clean the legs, trim away fat and bones so you are left with four beautiful chicken legs. In a cup mix 4 tablespoons of olive oil, salt, pepper, thyme, rosemary, garlic and the sweet chili pepper. Put the legs in a ovenproof pan and brush with this mixture. Put it in the oven to bake for about 30-40 min until they look golden brown and juicy.

Chop the onion in small cubes. In a pot, add 4 tablespoons of oil and saute the onions until translucent and then add the peas. Add water, so the peas are covered. Let is simmer for about 20 minutes. Then add the chicken stock (I use cubes), salt and pepper and the tomato paste. Let it simmer for 2-3 minutes and then add the fresh dill.

Seve immediately with some good bread.
