What’s the difference between soup and stew?
The amount of liquid is what determines if it’s a soup or a stew. Soup has lots of liquid and a little bit of add ins. Stew is thicker with less liquid and more add ins. Lots of liquid equals soup. Thick liquid equals stew. Easy peasy lemon squeezy to tell the difference
Gather all your ingredients on the counter. If you have already cooked chicken in the freezer, you can use that and save loads of time. It doesn’t matter if its shredded or not. No one will notice I promise.
No chicken in the freezer? Cube your chicken breasts. Break out the large stockpot, drizzle some oil in the bottom, and in brown the chicken in batches. Remove all chicken from pot.
Once chicken is all browned and out of the pot, add in the peppers and onions. Cook until soft or about 3 minutes. Throw the chicken back in along with the lime juice, lime zest, peanut butter, liquid aminos, and garlic chili sauce. Mix it all together so they flavors get to know each other.
Simmer for 15 minutes or so. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro if desired. Garnish with extra cilantro and chopped peanuts.
Why does cilantro taste like soap to some people?
Some people don’t like cilantro because it tastes like soap. The issue is actually genetics. There’s a variation in the olfactory receptor gene which turns cilantro into a soapy taste. This variation affects between 4-14% of the population.
