Preparation

Barbecue method:

Preheat grill to medium heat.

In a small saucepan, heat water to just before boiling. Remove from heat and steep bag of tea for 3 minutes.

Preheat a large cast-iron skillet or an aluminum pie plate on the grill for 2–3 minutes. Melt butter and brown chicken with onion and garlic for 3–5 minutes.

Add tea, tomato sauce, spices, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil.

Mix in rice, cover tightly with aluminum foil and cook for 10 minutes. Add shrimp and continue cooking for 10 more minutes or until rice is tender and tea has been absorbed.

Place pepper quarters on the grill and cook on both sides until grill marks appear. Remove from the grill and cut into strips.

Remove skillet from the grill and top with peppers and cheese. Serve immediately. 

Alternative cooking methods:

In a skillet over medium heat, cook according to the barbecue method instructions. Broil peppers separately on the top rack of a preheated oven. Cook for a few minutes on both sides or until peppers begin to brown.
