Chicken XimXim with Ground Peanuts

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (12 votes)

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

Expected a more flavorful dish

The dish looked beautiful in the picture. I could not find dried shrimp, so I used a very good quality Vietnamese fish sauce which was listed in the recipe as an alternative. Because we like spice, I used an extra garlic clove and added a diced jalepeno with the red bell pepper. Otherwise, I followed the menu. It smelled wonderful, but when I served it, my husband and I both kept adding more fish sauce and we also had to add hot sauce. Without them, it was just too bland for us. I won't bother to make this again, but if I did, I would substitue cilantro for the parseley and grind a lot more peanuts and either look for the dried shrimp or double the fish sauce from the 3 tbsp in the menu to 6.

Not too complicated

My kids love this dish! They ask for it once a week! Its great, healthy and light. We serve it over rice.

The only changes I have made are to use red, yellow and green bell peppers, leave out the dried shrimp and fish sauce. Not only is it fragrant (in a non-fishy pleasant way) but it's super colorful!

Yum!
