- 8-10 boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breasts
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup oil
- 3 plum tomatoes, diced
- 1/2 onion diced
- 1 dried red chile
- 3/4 cup unsalted peanuts
- 2-3 cloves of garlic, peeled
- 1 can or 1 3/4 cups chicken broth
- salt to taste
Cut the stem off of the chile and then slit it down the side and remove the seeds.
Remove the chicken from the pan and add in tomatoes, onions, garlic, dried chile, peanuts and chicken broth and bring to a simmer for about 15 minutes. Using a stick blender, blend the sauce right in the pan, then add the chicken back in and simmer for an additional 10 minutes so the flavors all meld together nicely.
If you don't have a stick blender, let the sauce cool and blend in a regular blender then bring back to a simmer in the pan with the chicken.
Serve with hot tortillas.
