  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless and skinless chicken breasts chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 sweet potatoes peeled and chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup crunchy natural peanut butter
  • 4 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil



  • Heat canola oil in a dutch oven or large pot over medium heat. Add chicken and all seasonings, stirring until the chicken is cooked on the outside, about 5 minutes.
  • Add sweet potato, water, peanut butter, and tomato paste. Stir as you bring the water to a boil over high heat. Decrease to a simmer over medium-low heat. Cover and let simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Uncover the pot and remove from heat. Stir in chopped peanuts. Use a wooden spoon to gently scrape along the bottom of the pot to loosen anything stuck to it.
  • Serve with cooked rice. Garnish with additional peanuts and fresh parsley.
