Nigerian Christmas Chicken Stew

In Nigeria, Christmas is a festive affair filled with decorations, parades, music, time spent with family, and (of course) food! A West African staple during the holidays is chicken stew and this recipe is very indicative of what you would find there during the celebrations. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

  • 1 pound of chicken breasts
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger root, minced
  • 2 cans black eyed peas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (28oz) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 large sweet potato, cubed
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons thyme
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice, optional

Directions

In a Dutch oven, heat one tablespoon of the oil.
