Easy African-Style Peanut Chicken

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

I love a wide variety of cuisines, and I have a fondness for African foods. I am a single mother with a multiple handicapped brain damaged child. I also go to college full time and work in Oncology, so I am always needing something good but fast! I have a friend in Africa who sends me recipes and I kind of tweak them for ease, shall we say. I make this with my African style rice (look for it in my recipes!) Enjoy!

This was good. We are used to much spicier African dishes... I added sambal to taste and served it with fried spinach... without my additions 3 stars good but with this additions it was really good. I also made the African style rice as suggested

We used real garlic, canned tomatos, red onions, and chunky peanut butter. We also added some cayenne and coriander. Turned out great.
