I was searching for inspiration from my Flickr pictures from last year .. decided to share this Chicken Peanut Stew a food from my childhood and fantastic store cupboard food , dare I say in in the wake of the all the controversy around How to Cheat at Cooking .. this is about as cheating as I get .
Chicken Peanut Stew
4 Chicken Thighs
4 heaped tablespons of peanut butter – I favour crunchy
1 tin of plum tomatoes( 400g)
1 tbsp of worcestershire sauce
1tbsp dried chilli flakes
- Turn oven onto 200degC
- Place the chicken thighs in a cast iron pan
- Mix together all the over ingredients and pour over the chicken
- Cover the pan and bake in the oven for 30 minutes removing the lid for the last 10 to allow the skin to crisp and sauce to thicken
- Serve with rice or pitta bread.
The sauce is warm generous and far above what you would imagine from the ingredients .
