african peanut stew

Instant Pot African Peanut Stew is a hearty, comforting soup with rich, bold flavors. Tender bites of chicken and sweet potatoes are cooked in a vibrant sauce made with peanut butter and curry powder. 

My family devoured this last week and asked me to make it again, so I doubled the recipe.
