Ashley's African Peanut Soup

Ashley's African Peanut Soup
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 red bell peppers, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces
  • 3 cups sliced carrots
  • 4 cups chicken broth, or more as needed
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter


  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and brown the chicken breasts on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Place the chicken breasts into a slow cooker. Cook the onion, red bell peppers, and garlic in the hot skillet until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes; transfer the cooked vegetables into the slow cooker.
  2. Stir the crushed tomatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, chicken broth, curry powder, cumin, chili powder, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, cinnamon, and black pepper into the slow cooker. Set the cooker to High, and cook for 5 to 6 hours, or cook on Low for 10 hours. Stir in additional chicken broth throughout the cooking time if needed.
  3. Mix in the brown rice 3 hours before serving, and mix in the peanut butter at least 1 hour before serving. Shred chicken meat, and serve hot.
