Oh my! This is so good! The only thing different I did was I sauteed the sweet potato and spices (for aroma) before adding the tomatoes, chicken broth, and peanut butter. I wanted the sweet potato to cook thoroughly. I added the chicken back in before simmering. This tenderized the chicken throughout. The sauce thickened up and it was quite hearty! Delicious! Instead of serving with rice, I served it with chapati bread to scoop it all up with! Yum! Made plenty for lunch the next day. So goid! I highly recommend. Adding it to my favorites. Friend also asked for the recipe.
Cutting the sweet potatoes into smaller cubes make them cook faster. Try 1/2" cubes, or smaller.
This is delicious and I'm moving it into my "Favorite Recipes" file! I wasn't crazy about the smell at first and started getting nervous but we had it with white rice and devoured it. It did take awhile for the sweet potatoes to cook but definitely worth the wait!
I followed the recipe exactly, other than to double the chicken. I microwaved the sweet potatoes for 5 mins before adding to the stew so they would be cooked quickly. From start to finish, the dish only took 45 min. Everyone loved it! Not bland at all to us. Maybe those who find it bland didn't add the cayenne or ginger????

Could i make this recipe in a crockpot? has anyone tried doing it that way? Was curious because a lot of the reviews said that the sweet potato took a while to cook. Maybe cooking in the crockpot and adding the peas last may help. I may try it
This was only average to us and I won't make again. I like all the ingredients but the combination just didn't work - the tomatoes predominated. The sweet potato, as others have mentioned, did take much longer than 20 minutes even with small chunks.
Awesome, easy to make adjustments to make vegan
This was so good! It is a definite comfort food stew! I will be making this again for sure. Love the peanut butter and ginger flavors!
Definitely needs more time to cook to get the sweet potatoes tender and my husband wanted it to have more chicken. Tasty!
