food porn

i love food blogs. i could read them all day. restaurant reviews like eatit: the brooklyn food blog or recipe blogs like not eating out in new york.
so i am going to attempt my own entry. here goes.
when i was in college i had a friend from the ivory coast. he had a dinner party one night and made this amazing meal. i made it a few times after that, but had totally forgotten about it until today. apologies for my lack of photographic talent.
"west african peanut chicken"
ingredients (i'm more of a guess-timater, so take these amounts with a grain of kosher salt):
3 lbs chicken breasts or any other part(skins removed)
1/2 cup veggie oil
1 large onion
3/4 cloves garlic
1 can chicken stock
1 can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
1 cup creamy peanut butter
cayenne pepper
red pepper flakes

in a heavy dutch oven or stock pot, brown chicken in oil. set aside.

drain out any excess oil. add garlic and onion and saute. scraping up any chicken bits left in the pan.

add chicken stock, tomatoes and seasonings. bring to a boil.

add peanut butter and stir. add chicken breasts and let simmer covered about 45 minutes?

top with parsley and serve over white rice. yummy.
