      Loved this chicken - sooo good. I wouldn't change a thing; although, I didn't have any green pepper and we didn't miss it. The combination of the peanut butter and tomato paste really makes the chicken tender and the sauce is wonderfully delicious. Served with a kale salad and some roasted new potatoes. Next time I will serve this dish with some rice so we can pour the sauce over it. YUM! Made for the Week 8 Football Pool.

      A pretty good African curry! The chicken was cooked perfectly. The amount of peanut butter was just right, although I thought there may have been a bit too much tomato paste. The stew came out very acidic, but I just topped everything with some chutney so all was fine. Served over rice.

      Very flavorful! I made as written, but due to personal preference without green peppers, and slightly less chili flakes ~ the thighs were fork tender in 45 minutes! I served the stew over rice, and garnished with dry roasted peanuts. Made for Photo Tag.
