North African Curry Chicken
Oh wow. This amazing creamy curry is subtle but very delicious. An African curry but from Macau, it is created with a peanut butter and coconut sauce. I am not a big fan of peanut anything unless it is enrobed in chocolate...so this was a pleasant surprise. The peanutty-ness was not overwhelming at all and it just blended really well with the coconut and chicken! We loved it.
Originally from North Africa, this recipe has been tweaked by African immigrants residing in Macau (so it has a bit of Chinese cuisine thrown in for good measure.)
