African Chicken & Sweet Potatoes Recipe

I came up with this when I combined some of my favorite ingredients: sweet potatoes, chicken and peanut butter. Add mango chutney and tomatoes and you've got a fantastic busy-week recipe. —Devon Delaney, Westport, CT
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 bone-in chicken thighs (about 2-1/4 pounds)

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and finely chopped (about 4 cups)
  • 1/2 cup mango chutney
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 can (10 ounces) diced tomatoes and green chilies, undrained

"Really enjoyed this dish! I used plain diced tomatoes since we don't like a lot of spiciness. I'll definitely serve this again."

"I'm not sure why this recipe only has 4 reviews! It is so delicious! I accidentally used a full cup of the mango chutney and it still turned out great! Will definitely make again and again since both my husband and I loved it."

"We love this! The second time I prepared it I used the mild version of the diced tomatoes and green chiles, since the chutney I use is pretty spicy."

"Two words...Loved it. I can see why this was a contest winner. I had not used mango chutney (found it in the ethnic isle - Indian - around $4) before but it added so much to this dish. I served it with white rice and my family thought it was delicious."
