All I can say is when I went over to my Aunt's house and smelled this on the stove I asked her for the recipe before even trying it. This is a wonderful sweet and spicy soup that I just know you will love. Diabetic Exchange: 4 lean meat, 3 carbohydrate (3 bread/starch), 3 vegetable

Smells great cooking. I used boned thigh-leg meat and cut the sweet potatoes in smaller pieces to make it easier to serve. Really good over couscous. Strangely, it wasn't as good leftover as fresh, so eat a lot the first time!

Sweet and savory and delicious soup/stew. I used chicken breast, cooking it through at the start and then adding it back just before serving to rewarm. Very pretty presentation as well.
