Our 20 minute recipe

  1. Fry the courgette

    Cook the rice according to pack instructions. Keep aside.

    Meanwhile, heat a little oil in a pan over a medium-high heat then fry the courgette for 4 mins to get a little bit of colour on the sides, then remove from the pan. (If using okra, you'll just need 2-3 mins).

  2. Cook the chicken in the spices

    Next add the onion to the pan and fry for 4-5 mins.

    Add the chicken and fry for 3 mins.

    Reduce the heat to medium and add the Mali Spice Blend with 150ml water. Let it simmer for 3 mins.

  3. Add the tomatoes and peanut butter

    Add the cherry tomatoes and the Tomato Paste, mix well and cook for 2 more mins.

    Mix in the peanut butter and Cocoa Spices along with a 200ml of water and then cover it with a lid and let it cook gently over a medium-low heat for 5 mins, or until the chicken is cooked through. If the sauce is too thick, just add 100ml more water to loosen it.

  4. Serve!

    Stir the courgette/okra into the sauce and cook for 2 mins, or until tender, then serve the stew over rice and garnish with peanuts (if using) and a squeeze of lemon, which really enhances the flavours.

Really loved this dish - very unique/different to other flavours - not too peanutty but just enough - froze half and was even nicer second time round once flavours had set in !
