2/3 cup onion, diced
1 Tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 clove garlic, minced or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup cooked skinless chicken breast, diced
1 ½ teaspoons curry powder
½ teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
3 cups low-sodium chicken broth (see Notes)
1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
2 cans (14 1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes, unsalted
6 Tablespoons peanut butter
- In a large pot saute onion in sesame oil until translucent; add garlic and chicken and stir to heat through.
- Add seasonings and saute 1 minute longer.
- Add broth, tomato paste, tomatoes, and peanut butter. Stir until well combined.
- Heat over medium heat until hot but not boiling. Serve immediately.
- Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.
Broth can be canned or made using bouillon. For each cup of broth use 1 cup very hot water and 1 teaspoon or 1 cube bouillon.
- For more peanut flavor, add chopped peanuts.
- To avoid peanuts or peanut butter, try sunflower seeds or sunflower seed butter.
Very good. Tomatoes and chicken add extra flavor. Next time I am going to add some extra chopped peanuts for even more flavor.
I made this for a local food bank audience to sample. It was a simple recipe to scale up and most folks really enjoyed the flavors. A few people commented that it was too spicy so I might suggest leaving out some of the red pepper flakes if preparing for a mixed audience. When I make this at home I include frozen green peas and top with a handful of toasted cashews and some golden raisins. It's a favorite!
This was such a wonderful combination of flavors. I will definitely make it again.
