I wanted jerk chicken and I can't make rice. I also thought about this recipe all day and had to try it. Ok, I used jarred jerk sauce which was fine in a pinch but I'd normally make it (I bought the chicken on my lunch hour and then marinated it in the work fridge). The pasta and peas was sort of a play on the traditional rice and peas. It's a cream sauce made with a little jerk sauce for the heat and some coconut milk to accompany the cream. This turned out great and you could even do the pasta on it's own. This is also my method for making a cream sauce. I'm not sure if someone taught me this or I just cheated my way into making a cream sauce.
