ingredients for the best peanut butter pumpkin stew with boneless chicken tights recipe.

  • Chicken tights.

    You can use boneless or bone ones. If you want you can leave the skin on, just make sure to make them extra crispy. If you don’t like chicken tights at all, replace them with chicken breast pieces.
  • Onion.

    The onion is going to give so much flavor.
  • Garlic.

    The perfect partner for the onion. As we are using fresh ingredients for flavor, it is important to add ingredients that are rich in flavor, garlic is one of these.
