1/2 cup flour, all purpose or rice
5 Tbsp curry powder (fav is Madras)
2 1⁄2 teaspoons Kosher salt
3⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1⁄2 cup olive or coconut oil
3 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced

1 In a bowl, thoroughly combine the flour, curry powder, salt and pepper. Add the chicken pieces and shake to coat.

2 Heat oil in a large saucepan on medium high heat. Add chicken pieces. Cook 5 minutes (depending on size of chicken pieces) tossing occasionally to cook chicken until evenly browned. Add the ginger, garlic, chili pepper and 1 cup of the chicken broth to the saucepan. Cook for 3 minutes, scraping the pan with a spatula and stirring to combine.

3 Add the sweet potatoes and remaining broth. Simmer 10 minutes or until sweet potatoes are almost done.

4 Add the peanut butter, stirring quickly and gently to incorporate without breaking up the chicken and sweet potatoes. Simmer another 5 minutes. Adjust seasoning. Right before serving, add the coriander and green onions.
