The peanut butter adds something wonderful, without really tasting like itself. The BEST soup I have ever tasted.

This is the recipe I've been looking for!! I used to work for a specialty restaurant in the 80's that served a soup called "African Peanut Chicken"...it was by far the most popular soup. The restaurant closed for business years ago and took the recipe with them! I used the base of the recipe (the broth tomatoes onion celery chicken and garlic). To make it "African" I used canned okra corn rice cayenne pepper and coriander. It turned out great! I've dreamed of that soup for years and now I can have it anytime I want! It even has the enthusiastic approval of my family even my picky peanut-butter hating 13 year old daughter! Read More

This was awful. I used the natural peanut butter like someone suggested and I wouldn't recommend that. My whole house smelled like a burnt peanut butter chicken mixture and this soup fixed my boyfriend's craving for peanut butter for life. He's not sure he ever wants to eat pb again because it'll bring back flashbacks of this soup. Read More

I made this soup the other night.I thought that the flavor was very good. after reading some of the reviews saying that they thought it was very bland I did change 1 thing about the recipe.Not the ingredients but just one step.I began with 2 TBLES. olive oil heated added celery onion garlic a little salt &pepper to that and sauteed them til soft.Then added the broth and the rest of the ingredient's.This usually adds more flavor to the broth.

I loved this soup very good recipe with a sweet flavor. the peanut butter gave it a thai flavor. i made the mistake of telling my boyfriend there was peanut butter in it though so he kept complaining about it even though he liked the soup. Word to the wise ladies: what your man doesnt know wont hurt him!: ) Read More

I love this soup! I've made it several times. It freezes well. I like freezing it in individual portions and popping it in the microwave for lunch. Yummy! Read More

I was a little leary about trying out soup that had peanut butter in it but with all the rave reviews I decided why not? I just got done with dinner and the soup was absolutely delicious! I didn't tell my boyfriend about the peanut butter until after he started eating. He couldn't believe it had peanut butter in it! And with all the healthy veggies in it how could it be anything but great! We've added it to our list of our favorite recipes and I'm already looking foward to serving it again!:) Read More

Wow! This is SO good! Even the broth is so delicious which is unusual for a soup. Next time we'll try it in the slow cooker and add peanuts (though we used crunchy peanut butter and those little bits of crunch were great!) Try this soup! Suspend disbelief! Read More

Excellent soup. As for peanut butter grittiness this might help. A recipe for a simlilar peanut soup from Ghana I got years ago uses this method - In a heavy saucepan cook peanut butter over low heat stirring almost constantly. It will turn silky and runny then start to firm up again. This is the most labor intensive step. Add 1 1/2 cups of the broth and mix until smooth. Then add to soup Read More

This recipe made me look like a genius! I modified due to the veggies I had on hand so I ended up with potatoes canned carrots diced tomatoes fresh broccoli frozen stir fry veggies frozen corn and frozen onion. I also added some rice in step 2. HUGE hit w/my non-veggie loving family. 5 stars for sure! Read More
