Groundnut Stew
Peanut butter and okra flavor and thicken this tasty African stew. You can substitute green beans for the okra, if you like; the consistency of the sauce won’t be quite the same, but it will still be thick enough to cling to the chicken.

2 tablespoons cooking oil, more if needed
1 whole chicken, 3 to 3 1/2 pounds, cut into 8 pieces
1 3/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 onion, chopped
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 cup canned crushed tomatoes in juice, drained
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 3/4 cups water
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 ten-ounce package frozen sliced okra




In a large pot, heat the oil over moderately high heat. Season the chicken pieces with 1/4 teaspoon each of the salt and black pepper. Cook until browned, turning, about 8 minutes in all. Remove. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon fat from the pot.

Reduce the heat to moderately low. Add the onion to the pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, about 3 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and then the tomatoes and cayenne. Return the chicken legs and thighs to the pot and stir in 2 cups of the water. Bring to a simmer and cook, partially covered, for 10 minutes.

Whisk together the peanut butter and the remaining 3/4 cup water until smooth. Add this mixture to the stew along with the chicken breasts and wings, the okra and the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt and 1/4 of teaspoon black pepper. Cook, partially covered, until the okra is just done, about 10 minutes.


Wine Recommendation: A simple fruity red wine such as a Beaujolais (or if it's December through March a Beaujolais-Nouveau will make a lively companion to the peanut butter in this stew.

From south of the border comes this spicy and hearty soup ladled over crisp tortilla strips and grated cheddar. The soup is chunky with chicken and avocado, but it’s the tortillas that give it a slight thickness and a special flavor.

Spaghettini is a good stand-in for Asian rice noodles, but if you find rice noodles, use them. You can substitute ordinary cabbage for bok choy.
