1 tablespoon lime juice
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup soybean oil
1 shallot
1 garlic clove
1 teaspoon dried thyme

2 cups chicken stock

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1. Season chicken with lime juice, salt, and pepper.

2. Heat oil in a Dutch oven and sauté the chicken pieces until golden brown on all sides.

3. In a mortar, pound to a paste the shallot and garlic. Add seasoning paste, thyme, green hot pepper, 1 cup stock, and peas to the chicken. Reduce heat and simmer covered 25 minutes or until chicken pieces are tender.
