Groundnut Stew


8-12 chicken pieces (we used 1 pound or a 1/2 kilo of cut up chicken quarters)

1 medium onion, chopped

1 t salt

1 t pepper

1 T curry powder

1 t cayenne pepper

1 cup smooth peanut butter (natural, never jiffy or skippy)

10 cups hot water

2 medium-ripe tomatoes, pealed.

We used about a cup of salsa Season chicken with onions and all dry ingredients.

Moisten with a little water and cook over medium heat in a large saucepan for 15 minutes.

Stir as needed. While chicken is cooking, mix peanut butter with boiling water in a bowl until smooth (Ghanaians will use their fingers)

Add peanut butter mixture to chicken when it is ready.

Bring to a boil at once and continue boiling for about 30 minutes.

Grind tomatoes in a blender until smooth, and add to soup.

Simmer until chicken becomes tender and a dark oil begins to form in soup.

Stir often.
