Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    Olive Oil, 1 tbsp
    1/4 cup diced red onion
    1 tbsp. Ginger Root
    2 tsp. Jalapeno Peppers, finely diced
    1 tsp Chili powder,
    Chicken Broth, 1 cup
    Natural Chunky Peanut Butter, 1/2 cup
    2 Tbsp. Tomato Paste
    1 Tbsp. Cider Vinegar
    Chicken Breast, Cooked, Diced, 3 cups
    Scallions, raw, 2 large
    Chiles - Ortega, Fire Roasted Diced Green 1 can

Directions

Finely chop the red onion, ginger, and jalapeno, and roughly chop the chicken. Heat oil in a heavy pan, add finely diced onion, ginger, and jalapenos, season with salt, and saute about 2 minutes. Add the chile powder, stir into other ingredients, and saute about 1 minute more.

Add chicken stock, peanut butter, tomato paste, and apple cider vinegar, stir, and bring to a slight boil. As soon as it starts to boil, lower heat to a very gentle simmer, add roughly chopped chicken and green chiles, gently stir to combine, and let simmer 10-15 minutes. (Resist the urge to stir it very much, or the chicken will shred apart, which you don't want here.)

While mixture simmers, wash, dry, and slice green onions. After 10-15 minutes, gently stir again if the oil from the peanut butter has separated. Serve hot, with a generous handful of green onion slices on each serving.
