I love African Chicken Stew! It's tasty and healthy. The combination of chicken, peanut butter and sweet potatoes is absolutely amazing! However, the recipe I usually use is made on top of the stove and takes a bit longer to prepare than I'd like. Searching the Internet, I found this one at Ready Set Eat. It's for the crock pot, my all -time favorite appliance! A little bit of stove-top prep is involved, but not nearly as much as my other recipe. Enjoy!
