Finishing the chicken pilaf with peaches -- 20 minutes

HEAT olive oil in the large skillet and sauté the onion and garlic for a few minutes. ADD the chicken pieces and cook on medium-high heat until the chicken starts to brown a bit.

ADD tomato paste and after another minute of cooking, POUR in the juices of the peaches along with the small pieces of peach. SET the wedges aside for garnish. ADD passata, ketjap, sambal, curry and the other half of the vegetable stock cube.

Let in simmer on low heat for about 10 minutes. You can choose to cook it a bit longer until you've reached the desired thickness. You can also reached the desired thicken by using cornstarch as a thickening agent.

ADD the cashew nuts to the sauce. DRAIN the rice, SEASON the sauce with pepper and salt and serve with the rice and peach wedges. Enjoy!
