    Peanut butter brings something magic to this soup. It adds a great depth in flavour, without being overpowering. Chicken is simmered with vegetables and peanut butter in a chicken stock. It's a delicious and hearty soup, that will warm you throughout the winter.

    I loved this recipe and surprisingly, so did the rest of the family. Have been requested to make it again soon!  -  01 Nov 2016


    I made this soup the other night.I thought that the flavor was very good. after reading some of the reviews,saying that they thought it was very bland, I did change 1 thing about the recipe.Not the ingredients,but just one step.I began with 2 TBLES. olive oil,heated,added celery,onion, garlic,a little salt &pepper to that and sauteed them til soft.Then added the broth and the rest of the ingredient's.This usually adds more flavor to the broth.  -  28 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is the recipe I've been looking for!! I used to work for a specialty restaurant in the 80's that served a soup called "African Peanut Chicken" was by far the most popular soup. The restaurant closed for business years ago and took the recipe with them! I used the base of the recipe (the broth, tomatoes, onion, celery, chicken and garlic). To make it "African" I used canned okra, corn, rice, cayenne pepper, and coriander. It turned out great! I've dreamed of that soup for years and now I can have it anytime I want! It even has the enthusiastic approval of my family, even my picky peanut-butter hating 13 year old daughter!  -  14 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
