Easy African-Style Peanut Chicken

"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!"

  1. 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
  2. We used real garlic, canned tomatos, red onions, and chunky peanut butter. We also added some cayenne and coriander. Turned out great.
  3. Easy and excellent. I used real garlic and canned tomatoes. Turned out delicious.
  4. We loved it! My boyfriend generally doesn't like peanut sauces, but he liked this one. He went for seconds on the chicken and rice. I tend to like peanut sauces to be spicier, and next time I'll add some crushed red peppers to the tomato. Thanks so much!
  5. Thanks, Emmas Mom, for very yummy recipe. I served this with your African style rice. I've never done a main dish with peanut butter before. Not adventerous enough, I guess. lol. I had all the ingredients on hand and I've been wanting something different with rice. This was so quick and easy, healthy and low sodium as well. Thank you so much for posting this. we will be enjoying this again soon!

I am a single mother of a multi handicapped 4 year old and I am a full time college student and I work in the health care field, I also take great delight in regional classics and authentic foods. Biggest pet peeves: I understand people like to take recipes that are from a culturally diverse background and make it their own (either by Americanizing it or what not..) but claiming it to be authentic. I prefer that a person says "This is my knock-off version". For me, it's like somebody carrying a Fake Prada and saying it's the real deal. It's not. I am very fair on my judging of recipes. Don't be offended if I don't like it. You can't make them all happy. I will tell you why it didn't work for me and maybe some suggestions on what could make it better or more appealing. Do not email me your nasty messages about it or have you and your recipe posting buddies harass me because I say your recipe isn't traditional. Because it's not and it's a blatant lie and you should say it isn't traditional. I don't get offended if people don't like mine. Different strokes for different folks. It doesn't hurt me not does it make or break my bank.
