Chicken XimXim with Ground Peanuts

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/chicken_ximxim_with_ground_peanuts.html

From EatingWell:  February/March 2006

In African dialect, ximxim means "stew." Using ground peanuts, shrimp and coconut in stews is distinctly African. Enjoy spooned over brown rice.

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add chicken, salt and pepper and saute, stirring often, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in the pot over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, parsley and garlic, reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until thick and bubbly, 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, place dried shrimp (if using) in a food processor and process until finely ground. Transfer to a small bowl. Add peanuts to the processor and process until finely ground. Combine the ground shrimp (or fish sauce), if using, with the ground peanuts.
  4. Add broth, coconut milk and the peanut mixture to the pot. Increase heat to medium, bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 10 to 15 minutes. Add the reserved chicken and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.
