Japanese Dinner on a Dollar

A Japanese style meal that is tasty and economical, consisting of chicken that marinates while it cooks, BBQ black eyed peas with no BBQ required and a warm Japanese style slaw that has just a tiny bit of tang. Please do not let the list of ingredients scare you off as they are mostly pantry staples. The number of steps looks like there is a lot of work involved but once the chicken and beans are cooking you will have time to wipe down the kitchen or even write a recipe as the slaw does not get made till just 10 minutes before the chicken is done.**Do Not overcook slaw as it should be crispy tender**

I only made the chicken part, but it was really awesome! Next time I'll plan ahead better and make at least the slaw too.
