Among Friends Thursday -African Chicken Peanut Soup
A few years ago, my friend NeeCee made an African Chicken crock pot meal which also had chicken and peanut butter. I remember really loving that when our kids were learning about Africa. This is much the same. The flavors are unique and very interesting--curry, tomato, peanuts. It all equals yum. NeeCee's family tried this recipe too, and reported to me that they all loved it. Much better than the canned goat milk we tried during our Africa studies! I added some extra cayenne to mine, because I had to go easy with the red pepper flakes called for in the recipe. My hubby...he is just not addicted to spicy like I am! Upping the heat is easy to do with just a sprinkle after everyone has their own bowl.
The cookbook is going into the 3rd printing. If you still want to order, just click on the photo of the book on the side bar. Or you can go through Amazon. It has all been so exciting as the book launched. Trying the new recipes is great too. So many experts contributing their favorites. Just knowing that this recipe comes all the way from Africa makes it all the better. I was hoping to see how well it freezes for some lunch box ideas, but we licked the pot clean tonight. Next time, I will certainly make a double batch. Thanks for great recipe, Jennifer!
