Southern Peanut Chicken Soup

  • Prep : 10 mins
  • Cooking : 15 mins
  • Serves : 4

Ingredients

Serves 4
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 3 to 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) low-sodium diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 3 to 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) low-sodium diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken

Directions

Step 1.

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onions, celery, and bell pepper, and cook until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Add 3 cups of broth and tomatoes. Bring to a simmer, and then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer gently until the flavors blend, about 5 minutes.

Step 2.

Puree with a stick blender or in an upright blender or food processor (in batches if necessary). Return soup to pan and stir in peanut butter, salt, cayenne, and chicken. Heat through, 2 to 3 minutes.

Tip: To make this soup even more quickly, buy a rotisserie chicken and cut the meat into cubes.
