      This is definitely a keeper for us--five stars all around the table (including the 8 month old who gobbled the peas LOL). I didn't realize until it thawed that my chicken was skin on/bone-in, so I just pulled off the skin and simmered as-is, deboning and shredding the chicken in the last 5 minutes while the peas cooked. I skipped the pimentos as I didn't have any but otherwise followed the recipe. I did add a bit of extra garlic and salt in the end, but that was to enhance the yummy flavor that was already there. Thanks so much for posting! Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag. ETA: I found the original recipe on the Prevention page and it lists the chicken broth amount as one 14.5 oz can.

      Nice recipe. I will increase the cumin a bit though next time. It didn't seem to have a very strong flavour.
      Made for New Kids on the Block tag game. :)
