A Departure Without Exception

A number of recipes that I have been making lately have been a departure from my traditional. This recipe is no exception.

It was creamy and light. Worth a try!

Spicy Peanut Soup with Chicken

Prep Time: 35 minutes | Cook Time: 35 minutes | Servings: 4 main-course servings


1 pound skinless boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 3/4- to- 1-inch cubes
1 tablespoon hot sauce
4 cups low-salt chicken broth
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter (do not use natural or old-fashioned)
2 tablespoons tomato paste
5 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
2 medium zucchini, trimmed, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 cup drained canned diced tomatoes in juice


Combine chicken cubes and hot sauce in medium bowl and toss to coat well. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss again. Whisk chicken broth, peanut butter, and tomato paste in another medium bowl to blend.

Melt butter in large pot over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion and zucchini; sauté until tender, about 8 minutes. Add chicken and sauté until no longer pink on outside, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with flour and cook 1 minute, stirring occasionally.

Add broth mixture and tomatoes to pot. Simmer until chicken is cooked through and flavors blend, about 5 minutes. Season soup to taste with salt and pepper. Serve.

    I’m curious enough to want to try this. It sounds very different. I kept looking for peanuts in the ingredients and then realized you must have used crunchy peanut butter.
