International Night: The Congo

7 01 2010

One of my goals in the next few months is to get back on track with our Family International Night.  Our family has been at a busy stage of life where I ‘m just happy to get something on the table at all, and an international meal every week was feeling overwhelming.  So we took a little break from it, but this week we picked it up again.

Tonight, we traveled to The Congo for some Nsoso ya Muamba:

Chicken with Peanut Sauce:

Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in large saucepan.  Fry 3 lbs. of chicken, cut up, until cooked through (I used 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts).  Remove from oil, then fry:

1 large onion, sliced

1-2 cloves garlic


1 cup tomatoes, fresh or canned

1/4 cup tomato paste

1/3 cup peanuts, ground in blender, or chunky peanut butter

Stir in 1 cup water until the sauce is smooth.


1 bay leaf

2 Tbsp. celery or celery leaves, chopped

1 tsp. salt

Cook a few minutes, stirring constantly.  Return chicken to sauce.  Stir to coat pieces well.  Cover and cook over medium heat about 15 minutes.  If too thick, add a little water. Serve over rice.

can you believe matthew is flying an airplane all the way to the congo next week?? (me neither. ha.) your girls might find it interesting to see on a map…he’s flying to Lubumbashi, then to Kinshasa, and then he leaves the airplane there and flies on the airlines to Jo’burg, then home. 🙂 feel free to pray for him.
