Instructions
  1. Soak the beans overnight, next day, rinse and add to a large pot and and water to cover by 1-2 inches, simmer until soft.
  2. Boil (or saute in a bit of olive oil) the chicken, on low heat in a separate pan until cooked through, do not over cook. Add to the cooked beans.
  3. Add the okra, peppercorns, tomatoes, and rice to the beans, add water as needed (or whey if you have it) and simmer for 20 minutes or so. Add the broccoli and simmer for another 10 minutes until broccoli is cooked through and soft. Add seasoning to taste and simmer until you are hungry.
  4. A salad or good thick bread with real butter would be great for a side dish.
Recipe Notes

Chicken would run 55 Baht at the most for 1/2 kilo, beans would be 25 Baht or less for 1/2 a bag. Everything else is low cost, this meal would be 80 Baht for chicken and beans, for 4 servings, this would be about 60 cents per meal per serving.

  1. This sound really good, although Okra, here in South Africa, is extremely expensive. I would use baby corn, courgettes or patty pans as a substitute?

    • Good choices, Denise. Okra is common here as well as baby corn, courgettes (zucchini) and patty pans not so much.
