DIRECTIONS

  • In a large, heavy pot, heat the oil on med-high. When hot, add the onions and sweet potatoes, stir and cook until onions are soft and translucent.
  • Add chicken, cook til opaque.
  • Stir in the garlic, curry powder, coriander, cumin, and crushed red chiles. Cook 1 minute.
  • Add the carrots, celery, ginger, cinnamon, bay leaf, salt, chicken broth, and tomato paste.
  • Bring the liquid to a boil, then cover and simmer on low for 45 minutes.
  • When the stew has cooked for 45 minutes, stir in the peanut butter. Cook another 3 minutes, uncovered for the flavors to blend.
  • Stir in the chopped tomato and bell pepper. Simmer until the tomatoes and pepper are softened but still retain their shape, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Stir in lemon juice. Serve with the chopped cilantro on the top, and additional red pepper flakes on the side, if desired.
  • I like to serve this stew over hearty brown rice. Healthy and delicious!
