"I made my own version of this recipe after eating it at a restaurant. The mixture of ingredients seems a little peculiar, but trust me, they work wonderfully together."

  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and brown the chicken breasts on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Place the chicken breasts into a slow cooker. Cook the onion, red bell peppers, and garlic in the hot skillet until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes; transfer the cooked vegetables into the slow cooker.
  2. Stir the crushed tomatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, chicken broth, curry powder, cumin, chili powder, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, cinnamon, and black pepper into the slow cooker. Set the cooker to High, and cook for 5 to 6 hours, or cook on Low for 10 hours. Stir in additional chicken broth throughout the cooking time if needed.
  3. Mix in the brown rice 3 hours before serving, and mix in the peanut butter at least 1 hour before serving. Shred chicken meat, and serve hot.

This recipe is wonderful. I made a few changes because it was my first time making soup like this and I just used what I had on hand. I cooked rice separately and served it over rice. I also ...

I loved this recipe. I order African Peanut Stew at one of my favorite restaurants about once a month. This recipe was just as good! I didn't add the rice to mine because I don't need the extra ...

My husband & I always add one can of pumpkin puree. Vegan/vegetarian variation: add 1 can canned pumpkin, substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth, and leave out the chicken. Deliciou...

This is absolutely delicious! I used TVP chunks instead of chicken. The peanut butter really makes the soup. Make a big batch, it will go fast.

I loved the flavor of this soup and I will definitely make it again, however, I am a bit perplexed with the ingredients and serving size. The recipe states 20 servings. For whom? Infants? I'...

It was great the first couple of nights, but not something I'd want to eat all week. (And for me and my husband, that's usually what soup recipes mean for us .. the same thing all week.) After t...

When I was little, m y mother made peanut soup for us and we all hated it, so I've never tried it since. Therefore, it was a nice suprise to find this one so good! Our whole family loved it, and...

This was the first time I'd had or made peanut stew, so I can't say how it compares to others, but I liked the flavor. I subbed quinoa for rice, omitted the chicken, and used veg broth. My only ...
