Method

From the Congo comes an attractive way of cooking Chicken with Peanuts. The chicken is cooked in a covered casserole, with plenty of oil and butter. When nearly done it is covered with a kind of peanut sauce, made by first of all roasting the peanuts, removing shell and skin, pounding in a mortar, and cooking in water to the consistency of a very thick purée. The chicken is then cooked for another few minutes.
