Chicken & Black-Eyed Pea Chili

Developed by Sean Peters of My Body My Kitchen, exclusively for Farmer Focus! “This chili recipe, unlike the others I’ve made, does not use kidney or black beans; instead I used black-eyed peas. In addition to having a pleasantly earthy taste that I truly enjoy, black-eyed peas are a great source of protein, fiber and folate.”

Easy Chicken Vindaloo

Developed by Sean Peters of My Body My Kitchen, exclusively for Farmer Focus! “Vindaloo is a spicy Indian dish made by marinating a protein in vinegar, spices and garlic; it is actually an Indianization of a Portuguese dish. It is not uncommon to find vindaloo made with potatoes, however, although the term “aloo” means potatoes in Hindi, “vindaloo” is more of a play on the name of the original Portuguese dish “carne de vinha d’alhos” which means “’meat with wine garlic marinade”.
