Once the chicken pieces are done, take them out of the heat and set aside. Lower the heat, add more oil to the pot, then saute your onions and garlic.

After that, add the tomato paste and stir it constantly for 3 minutes. When the paste becomes darker, add in the rest of the ingredients except the peanut butter.

Put the sauce back and simmer for another 10 minutes. Serve the moambe hot on top of a bed of rice.
