Hi Friends! And welcome to another installment of 30 Minute Thursday.
Have you been following along with the other posts in our series? If not, you can catch up on all the past deliciousness here and here. It’s never too late! And you can always take a peak at the hashtag #30MinuteThursday on social media to see what we’re cooking up.
I’m always a big fan of quick and easy dinners, but this week I REALLY need them. Because daylight savings is totally sucking the life out of me. I feel like I can’t even function anymore once it’s dark outside. I just want to get in my pajamas and drink wine. It’s hard to muster up enough energy to cook dinner when it’s pitch black before 5pm. Ugh. I hate it!
So this African Peanut Stew with Chicken and Sweet Potatoes is just what the doctor ordered. I know you’re probably thinking it’s next to impossible to make a rich, flavorful stew in 30 minutes. But I’m here to tell you that it’s totally doable thanks to one of my favorite kitchen shortcuts: a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Those things are magical. Embrace them.
Also, make sure you use a nice big pot for increased surface area and faster cooking. It totally makes a difference.
This stew is satisfying enough all on it’s own. But I like to serve it over rice to make it extra hearty. You can cook up the rice while the stew is cooking. But day old rice is great here too!
