This is really quick, but different enough to impress guests (just make sure they're not spice-wimps!)

YUMMY - I picked this recipe at random and decided to make it for our Kwanzaa celebration on New Years day, 2011. OMG! OMG! of all the food we had at the celebration -( and there was a lot) my soup was a family hit! I did not have tomato paste, so I used a little flour and water for thickening, one can of light coconut milk and a few extra heaping tablespoons of peanut butter.
This recipe will move into my top ten!
Very nice - just the right spice and filling as well. I added some fresh lime juice and a small amount of cilantro
Yummy! I liked LGCP's addition of a can of coconut milk -- makes Creamy African Chicken-peanut Soup. Fast, easy, and delicious. Moderatelly spicy -- "two peppers out of five." Minor issue is recipe asks for 1 cup of diced cooked chicken but then asks you to saute the chicken. Fresh chicken saut?ed for 10 minutes is cooked enough.
