I don't know if this is authentic or not, and I haven't tried it yet (but will soon), but it sounds good. When I was in Bolivia they used peanuts in a lot of dishes that we ate, though I never had the chance to eat a chicken dish with peanuts. It says to serve with rice, but I think serving it with any kind of potato dish would be appropriate. Maybe boiled potatoes? We ate a lot of potatoes during our trip, that's for sure!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. In a large frying pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken strips and sauté, stirring, for 3 minutes, until chicken turns opaque. Remove chicken and set aside.
  2. Add onions, bell peppers, and garlic to pan. Sauté 3 minutes, until onions are tender. Stir in hot pepper. Add broth and peanut butter. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes.
  3. Stir in chicken, peas, and bread crumbs. Cook 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thickened and mixture is heated through. Serve over rice.

Excellent dish. I am not fond of peanut butter but my wife loves it so that is why I chose this dish. All the flavors just blended really nice and I particularly like the heat from the red pepper flakes. This will definitely go on to my list of recipes to do again. Thanks for a great new dish. Made for PAC 2010.
