About this recipe: Pepperpots are slowly cooked, spicy one-pot meals prepared on all the Caribbean islands. This version, using chicken rather than the more traditional fatty pieces of pork, also includes rice for an easy, oven-baked meal.
For a vegetarian option, omit the chicken and increase the total number of peppers to 4. Callaloo greens are often included in traditional Jamaican recipes, but finely chopped spinach makes a good substitute.
If you don't have a flameproof casserole that can be used on the hob as well as in the oven, start the cooking in a large saucepan, then transfer the contents to an ovenproof casserole or covered baking dish.
This has nothing to do with West Indian pepperpot, which is a meat dish (plus Scotch bonnet pepper) with casareep (cassava extract). No vegetables, not even onion. Casareep is a natural preservative; pepperpot can be kept indefinitely if brought to a boil each day. This recipe is just for chicken and bean soup. - 13 Jan 2014
