  • Summary

    This dish, typical of West Africa, is traditionally accompanied by foo-foo (a porridgelike side dish made from corn, sweet potato, plantain, or cassava meal). We strongly recommend serving the stew with rice to sop up the delicious sauce.

    Ingredients

    • 1 (3- to 3 1/2-lb) chicken, cut into 10 serving pieces
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 (14- to 15-oz) can whole tomatoes in juice
    • 1/4 cup water
    • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
    • 1/4 cup peanut or palm oil
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 4 garlic cloves, minced and mashed to a paste with 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons cayenne
    • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter at room temperature
    • 1 3/4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth (14 fl oz)
    • 1 lb sweet potato
    • 1 (10-oz) box frozen small okra, thawed
    • Accompaniment: rice
