Ingredients

  • 2 x 850g packs chicken drumsticks and thighs, skinned
  • 500ml chicken stock or water
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 5cm piece root ginger, grated
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1-2 Scotch bonnet chillis, pierced, according to desired level of heat
  • ½-1 tsp tsp hot chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp medium curry powder
  • 2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 100-150g good-quality peanut butter, depending on how thick you want it
  • 3 tsp unsalted roasted peanuts, chopped, to garnish
  • 3 spring onions, sliced, to garnish
For the chalé sauce
  • 1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 5cm piece root ginger, grated
  • 1 red Scotch bonnet chilli, deseeded
  • ½ tsp crushed dried chilli flakes
  • 3 garlic cloves

Step by step

Get ahead
Make up to 1 day ahead. Cool then chill. Reheat slowly with 100ml just-boiled water, bring to the boil on the hob, covered, and simmer for 20 mins or until piping hot. It can also be frozen. Defrost slowly and thoroughly in the fridge before reheating.
  1. Put the chicken pieces into a large, heavy-based saucepan or casserole, cover with the stock or water and add the onion, ginger, garlic, Scotch bonnet chillies, chilli powder, curry powder, salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer over a medium heat for 25 minutes until the chicken juices run clear, skimming off any froth that rises to the surface.
  2. Meanwhile, put all the ingredients for the chalé sauce in a blender and blend together until you have a fairly smooth paste.
  3. Stir the chalé sauce into the chicken and then add the peanut butter 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring until it has all dissolved. Adjust the amount of peanut butter depending on how thick you want it. Cook for a further 45 minutes-1 hour over a low heat, stirring regularly so that the sauce doesn't stick to the pan, until the peanut oil has separated and risen to the top, which means that it's done. You should have a soupy consistency and super-tender meat falling away from the bone.
  4. Serve ladled over fufu dumplings, with chopped roasted peanuts, and spring onions sprinkled on top.
