HEALTHY RECIPE: Chicken Xim Xim With Ground Peanuts

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

Ingredients

Prep: 50 | Total Time: 70

  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat and cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch of freshly ground pepper
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 6 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup dried shrimp, or 3 tablespoons fish sauce, optional
  • 1/4 cup roasted peanuts
  • 1 14-ounce can chicken broth, reduced-sodium
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 3/4 cup“lite” coconut milk

Instructions

  1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add chicken, salt, and pepper and sauté, 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.
