Julie Sanchez's Peanut Butter Chicken (recipe from Zaire – a typical North/Central African dish)

4-5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, whole or cut into chunks

2 Tbsp. oil

1 c. water

1 tsp. curry

15 oz. tomato sauce

1 small onion, chopped or wedged

1/3 c. peanut butter

¼ tsp. basil

Chilies, diced (amount depends on how hot you like your food!)

Cooked rice

Fry chicken in oil until golden brown. In separate bowl, mix together water, curry, tomato sauce, and onions. Pour mixture over chicken in frying pan and simmer 20 minutes. Add the chilies; simmer 5 more minutes. Just before serving, stir in peanut butter and add basil. Serve over rice.
