Chicken in Peanut-Tomato Sauce

In Africa, peanuts are often called groundnuts, and many variations on this "chicken-groundnut stew" are found throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. Homemade peanut butter is often used in central African cooking. You can make your own homemade peanut butter by roasting peanuts, removing the shells, and then crushing the peanuts into a thick paste. See also: Groundnut Stew, Peanut Sauce, and Peanut Soup.
