African Chicken with Homemade Ketchup

I was so excited about my homemade ketchup that I hadn't really thought about what I was going to do with it. Other than the obvious, of course, and I wasn't ready to order a cheeseburger and fries just so I could give a test run. The whole point of making my own condiments is so I can eat a more healthful diet, and not as an excuse to eat crap. On the other hand, I suppose I could have looked at it like those people (of whom I used to be one) who order a diet coke with their cheeseburger and fries. And I guess you could look at it from the perspective of every little thing making a difference. Issues of sugar substitutes aside, think how much worse that meal would be with a full-sugar soft drink, or a milkshake.

But I actually have not been tempted at the thought of a cheeseburger, or fries. So I had a jar full of my beautiful home-made ketchup and no plans for it. Until I started thinking about how I could use it.

I don't know where I got the idea to use it instead of tomato sauce for African chicken. I was sure the balance of sweetness and tartness would pair perfectly with the peanut butter and onions, and I was right. It was super delicious. Delicious enough that it is well worth the effort of making my own ketchup just for this recipe alone
