I lived in Kenya for 4 years and with a few small changes this was almost perfect! Omit the mushrooms, use chunky salsa for 1 of the cans of diced tomatoes, add fresh crushed peanuts after it is done, and use chicken broth not veggy broth. Also, spice the chicken (while browning) with garlic - fresh is the best!


Exceptionally chic and delicious! My boyfriend and I loved it and I brought it to a party and received the best comments by everyone. I added some sesame seed oil, fresh cilantro, shredded carrots, a sweet potato, and since I like things spicy I added a small jar of spicy salsa, finely chopped hot pepper, and used spicy olive oil. Since I added more I added more broth and used chicken broth instead. I used basmati rice and smooth peanut butter. I also topped it with sour cream and some cilantro. This soup is extraordinary full of flavour and I will make it over and over again. Try it-you’ll like it!


I thought this was rather tasty. I cut the recipe in half, as there were only 2 people going to be eating it! On a whim, I added 1/4 tsp. of chili powder instead of the 1/8 it would have called for, and I did closer to a half cup of peanut butter. The extra chili powder was excellent. The extra peanut butter was ok, but what it calls for would be fine too. The only complaint I have is that I need about double the time to get the rice cooked-- 15 minutes wasn't nearly enough time. I will still make this again.
