Abkhazia: Akuteitsarsh (Chicken in Peanut Sauce)

40 mins (prep 20, cooking 20)
15 ingredients
4 servings
This recipe is from week one of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every country in the world, starting with Abkhazia.This is a tasty dish that is pretty simple to prepare, but looks a bit odd. For the complete Abkhazian experience, serve with Walnut Lobio. (Note: This recipe also calls for two teaspoons of adjika, which in its infinite wisdom Food.com would not let me add to the ingredient list, I guess because it isn't ketchup and therefore is not a real ingredient. I've posted the recipe for adjika elsewhere on Food.com ... don't leave it out! It's an important part of the flavor in this dish and is easy to make.)
