Chicken Braised in Epis

Lelene's Restaurant

Boston Globe
...[with] deep-red brothy sauce... tomato paste is sauteed slowly in oil, then in go red bell peppers, garlic, scallion, thyme, and other spices, with enough water to create a complex, subtly spicy braising liquid. The meat becomes fabulously tender, and is served with the traditional riz pois collé, literally 'rice stuck to beans,' here light (and hardly sticky) with a luxurious jasmine rice.
