- One 3-pound frying chicken, cut into 8 pieces, skin removed
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 green bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, chopped
- 2 tablespoons capers
- 1/4 cup small pimento-stuffed olives
- 1 cup prepared tomato sauce

In a stockpot or Dutch oven large enough to hold all of the ingredients, heat the oil and brown the chicken on all sides. Cover, lower the heat and simmer for about 15 minutes.

Garnish with the peas and pimiento and serve.
