TRINIDAD PELAU ( sweet Caribbean food)

3 pounds chicken thighs and or drumsticks, cut up into large pieces
2 tablespoons green seasoning
2 teaspoons grated garlic
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon tomato ketchup
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
3 tablespoons cane sugar (substitute with brown sugar)
2 cups parboiled rice, washed and drained
3/4 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped sweet peppers
2 cups cooked pigeon peas (canned is fine)
1 cup diced carrots (optional)
2 cups fresh coconut milk (dilute milk with water if using canned coconut milk)
2 cups cooking liquid (stock, water or reserved cooking liquid from peas)
1 whole scotch bonnet pepper
1/2 cup sliced green onions (white and green parts)
Salt and pepper to taste

How to Make It
Marinate the Chicken

In a large bowl, place chicken, green seasoning, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and ketchup along with salt and pepper to taste.
Toss to mix and coat the chicken with the seasonings. Set aside and let marinate for at least an hour.
Cook the Chicken

Pour oil into a large pot and place on medium-high heat. Let oil heat until hot but not smoking.
Make the burnt sugar by sprinkling it into the heated oil in an even layer. Let the sugar melt until it starts to froth and bubble. As soon as the edges of the froth/bubbles start to get a slight shade darker, immediately add the seasoned chicken and stir to mix and coat with the burnt sugar. Let cook for 7 to 10 minutes.
Add the rice to the pot, stir to mix and cook for 3 minutes.
Add onions, sweet peppers, peas, and carrots (if using) and cook for 1 minute.
Pour in coconut milk and other cooking liquid. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Toss in whole scotch bonnet pepper. Cover pot and bring to a boil.
When the pot comes to a boil, remove lid partially and let boil until you can see the surface of the dish (about 7 to 8 minutes).
Cover pot fully, reduce heat to low and let cook for 25 to 30 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed.
Sprinkle the green onion on top and fold into Pelau. Taste and adjust seasonings with salt and pepper if necessary.
Serve hot or at room temperature.

Three Local Sauces

In many Trinbagonian homes, you're bound to find one of these three sauces which are depicted below. However, the creator of this video omitted the most important sauce, peppersauce. Here is a link to a video recipe showing how to make old-school, Trini style pepper-sauce:

How to Make Chicken Foot Souse

This delicacy is usually made and eaten at most Trini limes(hanging out with friends). It's great for cutting the alcohol or curing a hangover. As +Chris De La Rosaโ€‹โ€‹ pointed out, this dish is usually made with various parts of the pig's head and feet. However, this version is for those of us who don't eat pork. Bon Appรฉtit!
