- Mix salt, coriander, cumin, turmeric, paprika, and cayenne pepper together in a small bowl.
- Place chicken pieces in a separate bowl and add 1/2 of the spice blend. Mix together thoroughly to coat each surface with spice blend.
- Heat oil over high heat in a heavy pot. Brown half of the chicken pieces on all sides. Transfer to a bowl. Repeat with the rest of the chicken.
- Reduce heat to medium and add onion to pot. Saute until onions start to turn translucent and golden, 1 or 2 minutes.
- Add garlic and ginger; cook about 1 minute. Stir in remaining spice blend; cook and stir one minute.
- Pour in chicken broth. Add browned chicken along with accumulated juices.
- Stir in peanut butter and ketchup; add brown sugar. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to maintain a gentle, steady simmer. Simmer, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes.
- Transfer zucchini, red bell pepper, poblano pepper, and peanuts to the pot. Stir to mix.
- Continue simmering until chicken and vegetables are fork tender, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from heat.
- Serve over rice with a squeeze of lime and a sprinkle of peanuts and chopped cilantro.
