Chicken Peanut Stew

Peanut Butter Chicken Stew

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

  1. Turn oven onto 200degC
  2. Place the chicken thighs in a cast iron pan
  3. Mix together all the over ingredients and pour over the chicken
  4. 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
  5. Serve with rice or pitta bread.

The sauce is warm generous and far above what you would imagine from the ingredients .
