African Clay Cooked Spicy Chicken Peanut Stew

Have you been invited to an ÔÇťethnicÔÇŁ 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.
