  1. Toast the peanuts in a large pan over medium heat. You can toast them until some of them are slightly charred. Remove from the heat and let it cool.
  2. Chop the peanuts really well in a food processor. You can also place them in a sealed bag and crush them with a rolling pin or thick glass bottle. Another option would be to blend the peanuts with the chicken broth in a blender.
