    Peanut Chicken Soup

    I really like this soup. If you like Thai flavors you'll dig this. I just kind of freestyled it but I'll give you a base.

    1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs
    1 sweet onion (walla walla, mayan, yellow, etc...)
    1 large red bell pepper
    2 large garlic cloves
    2 tomatoes or a can of diced tomatoes
    chilli pepper (birdseye, red jalapeno, whatever you want)
    couple glugs of peanut,vegetable,canola, etc... oil
    some sesame oil
    cayenne
    pinch of fresh grated ginger (you can keep fresh ginger in the freezer)
    2 tsp brown sugar
    pinch dried thyme
    small handfull of chopped cilantro
    4-5 tbsp peanut butter ( i use the fresh ground stuff from the machine they have at most supermarkets)
    2.5ish cups chicken broth
    .25/.5 cup rice wine vinegar (or to taste. rice wine vinegar is very mild, but you might not like much tang, i used about a full half cup)
    pepper
    salt


    -in a container put a few glugs of a neutral oil along with some sesame oil. Add some minced garlic and some grated ginger along with a diced chilli pepper and the brown sugar + thyme. Add salt and pepper.

    -dice of the chicken thighs and add it to the marinade. Let this sit around for at least a half hour I would say.

    -While that's marinating heat up a pan and give a medium chop to the red bell and the onion.

    -Toss in the veges and cook until the onion starts to turn translucent.

    - Throw in the chicken and cook for a few minutes more.

    - Add in tomatoes, broth, peanut butter and vinegar. Simmer for about a half hour uncovered. Add in a small handfull of chopped cilantro.

    At the end of the simmer adjust your salt, sugar and vinegar ratio to your taste. Mine needed a few more pinches of sugar, dashes of salt and splashes of vinegar.

    I dipped crusty french bread into this and it was delicious. My wife poured it over spinach in her bowl (mirroring "swimming rama") and it was also great.

    A few ideas and things I'll try next time...

    -Use fish sauce or soy in place for some or all of the salt.

    -Use lime juice in place or along with the rice wine vinegar.

    Looks pretty good, i would probably put fish sauce into the soup because, well thai people put that into everything they eat.

    I also like the ginger in the freezer tip. I always keep my ginger in the freeze.

    Did you eat it plain or with rice. Looks almost like a curry, and would probably be good on top of rice.

    I did add some fish sauce at the end. We had an unopened bottle in the pantry that I didn't know about until the wifey told me AFTER I was done cooking :/

    Like I said, I dipped crusty french bread into it. Jasemine rice would be awesome too though.

    yum. I love thai flavors and I think I'll keep this around for when I get back from CA and am cooking for my dad again.
