Tastes mainly like chicken stock with a touch of peanut butter and chili flakes thrown in. I did leave out the sweet potato, so maybe it would have been much better with that included.

  1. In a large skillet with a tight-fitting lid, heat oil over medium high heat. Add chicken, and brown quickly. Remove chicken from pan.
  2. Reduce heat to medium low, and add garlic, onion and sweet potato to the pan; cook for 5 to 7 minutes. Season with cumin, coriander, red pepper, and salt and pepper.
  3. Mix in chicken broth and browned chicken. Place lid on skillet and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Remove lid, and stir in the peanut butter and garbanzo beans. Make sure the peanut butter is blended well. Replace lid to simmer for 2 more minutes.
