I was so delighted to see this recipe. I am from Jacksonville, but now residing in Des Moines, and a personal friend of the owner of Beach Road Chicken. After several years of begging, Vince finally told me that the missing ingredient that no one would ever guess was powered milk! You will find that adding 1/4 cup of powdered milk to the liquid from the peas, plus 2 tsp sugar, will give you EXACTLY what you've been craving.

I, too grew up with Beach Road Chicken Dinners. The best!! Thanks for sharing the recipe and thanks to the reviewer who knew about the powdered milk and the sugar. Now, if I could just make fried chicken like that!

Just like Mom used to make! I added a handful of canned mushrooms. Yummy and easy too! This is a keeper. Thanks.

Yummy! I had a can of sweet peas to use up and this was the ticket. I also live in Jax and LOVE Beach Road Chicken Dinner. These didnt taste exactly the same but my 4 yr old loved them and he normally hates veggies. Thanks!!!

I am not from Jacksonville and do not know what the Beach Road chicken is but this recipe was excellent. Added the powdered milk and sugar and 5/5 loved them and all agreed these were "like creamy restaurant peas". Will also use this recipe for other creamy veggies like onions, spinach, etc... Thanks Braunda.
