2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1 or 2 habanaro peppers, seeded and diced
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
1 large sweet potato, cut in 3/4" cubes
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter (Skippy Natural is very tasty)
1 (15 oz.) can chick peas, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup cilantro, choppped

In a large Dutch oven with a tight-fitting lid, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium high heat. Add chicken, and brown quickly. Remove chicken from pot. Add 1 tablespoon oil. Reduce heat to medium low, and add garlic, onions and habanaro peppers; saute 2 to 3 minutes. Season with cumin, black pepper, and salt.

Mix in chicken stock, sweet potato, and browned chicken, plus any accumulated juices. Place lid on Dutch oven and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove lid, and stir in the peanut butter and chick peas. Make sure the peanut butter is blended in. Replace lid and simmer for 10 more minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and sweet potatoes are tender. Stir in cilantro. Remove from heat, adjust seasoning, and serve with hot white rice.
