Have you been invited to an “ethnic” pot luck and don't know what to make?
- Are you tired of your old stand-by exotic dishes, like rice and stir fry?
- Have you thought about combining peanut butter into a main dish lately?
African and Southeast Asian cuisines like to mix it up a bit with spices, herbs and sauces that we don't seem to even think of when we're cooking dinner.
I love when a dish has a totally unexpected twist that is delicious and even recognizable.
That's how I felt with this African Spicy Chicken Stew.
Trust me, you won't regret trying this amazing new dish.
