Let's Make It
Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add chicken; cook 8 to 10 min. or until all pieces are evenly browned on both sides, turning occasionally. Remove chicken from skillet, reserving drippings in skillet; cover chicken to keep warm.
Mix peanut butter and tomato paste in medium bowl until blended. Add tomatoes and chicken broth; mix well.
Add onions, carrots and garlic to reserved chicken drippings in skillet; cook 5 min. or until crisp-tender, stirring frequently. Add peanut butter mixture; mix well.
Return chicken to skillet; stir until evenly coated with sauce. Bring to boil; partially cover skillet with lid. Simmer on medium-low heat 1-1/2 hours or until chicken is done (165ºF). About 20 min. before stew is done, cook rice as directed on package, omitting salt.
Serve stew over rice; sprinkle with nuts.
This satisfying recipe can be prepared ahead of time. Cool, then refrigerate up to 2 days. Reheat in microwave or on stove top just before serving.
For a little heat, mix 1/4 tsp. ground red pepper (cayenne) with the peanut butter mixture before adding to the cooked vegetables in skillet.
