Chicken and Peanut Butter Stew with Cassava - Sierra Leonean Recipe

Hello and welcome to The Cooking Wardrobe.  I am so pleased you came over because today I am show casing one of my grandma's Sunday specials which we all loved and it is a winner in my house as well.  

1 cup vegetable oil, 600 grams chicken pieces, 1 large brown onion(chopped) 2 fresh tomatoes and 4 dried birds-eye chilies (blended), 11/2 tbs peanut butter, 1 tbs tomato paste, a few  basil leaves, black pepper and 2 tsp chicken stock powder.
Season the chicken with 1 tsp stock  and black pepper
In a sauce pan over high heat, steam chicken for about 7 minutes then remove and set aside
Pour oil into a saute pan and  fry chicken pieces in batches
Add onions, chilies and fresh tomatoes and cook for 3 minutes
Now add peanut butter, tomato paste and remaining stock powder and cook for another 3 minutes
lower heat, add chicken and 1/2 cup water and let it simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.  
Finally, stir through basil
I served it with cassava cooked in boiling salted water for 15 minutes. Enjoy
