    CareCook's Note:

    Add precooked chicken to soup-like mixture and cook on stove for about an hour! Our family really enjoyed - even the kids! I used about 1/3 - 1/2 the amount of chili powder and 1/4 the amount of crushed red pepper.

      We love this chicken and it brought back wonderful memories. We spent most of 2009 travelling in Africa and enjoyed many dishes like this. Made this as written (following your advice to reduce the chili powder and crushed red pepper). I will be making this regularly -- and probably use chicken thighs as they stay moister. It's wonderful that such simple ingredients can create such a delicious and easy-to-make result. Thanks very much for posting.

      Thank you for a great recipe. I made it with chicken thighs and reduced the amount of chili and pepper flakes as you suggested. Instead of draining tomatoes, I reduced the amount of stock. I served it with South African yellow rice with raisins (recipe nr 456514). Delicious.
