This recipe is absolutely delicious! Hubby took one bite and said "Wow, this is good!" I second that! We love trying new things, and this will be on the table again, for sure!

This recipe is awesome!!! I often add baby carrots &/or sweet peas and have occasionally doubled the peanut butter content but then again I'm a certified peanut butter junky!

I think that there is another recipe with the same name " African Chicken Stew. This recipe is from a CAMPBELL's Slow cooker book. This recipe calls for Thighs and Drum sticks. I have made this several times and so has my neice and have gotten Raves . Just looking at the above recipe says to me that it isn't as good as the one from Campbells

Made a double batch of this today as the cold is setting in which calls for a hearty stew. Made it early afternoon and let it slow cook about 8 hrs. Dang this is some good stuff!! Took the advice and added cumin. Definitely need to cut sweet potato into smaller chunks in order to cook through - at least for my cooker pot. The sweet potatoes are perhaps as important as the peanut butter to make this dish unique, so, don't substitute if you can help it. A sweet cornbread as a side made me feel like I couldn't care less about the weather...

I didn't like the initial prep time before putting into the crockpot - then having to cook it for 7-9 hours in the pot. Next time would prep the night before. Taste was bland - was hoping for more peanut butter flavor. Next time would quadruple the amount of peanut butter. I added zuchini and carrots for more veggies, and used regular potatoes in lieu of sweet potatoes (the man doesn't like sweet potatoes). Probably will not make again.

I personally don't like when tomatoes "turn" the dish so it gets that "bloody" look so knowing that rotell is a tomato/pepper/sauce combination I changed that to just diced tomatoes, drained and chopped up some fresh peppers. Seemed to work as well and without the juice of the rotell I didn't get that pink sauce look plus the tomatoes stood out a little more.
