Ingredients

How to make it

  • 1. Combine saffron, turmeric, salt, pepper, ginger, cinnamon, and smear all over the chicken pieces. Put the olive oil/butter into the saute pan and sauté for about 6 minutes. Add 1/2 the onions and saute another 5 minutes or so.
  • 2. Add the remaining onions and broth to the pan. Bring to a boil and simmer gently for 20 minutes. Add chickpeas, almonds, and parsley.
  • 3. Simmer for another 20 to 30 minutes. Chicken should be tender by then! Remove from heat, add lemon juice and serve with hot steamed rice or couscous and flat bread.

    This sounds delicious. I love chickpeas. I'll have to give this a try soon :) I've bookmarked it.

    Try another bean or legume but keep in mind that a chickpea is quite hearty and holds up in cooking - the lentil breaks down... which might taste good but will give a totally different appearance. Ahh, the chemistry of it all!! :) Let me know if it works! - Colleen

    I really love the rustic ease of this recipe in that you use a whole, cut up chicken and don't have to reduce the chicken to miniscule pieces! I will definitely try this, even with the chick peas!! High 5 Max!

    I wonder if I could use lentils instead of the chick peas? I love ethnic dishes like this (African/Indian/Meditteranean) but I'm not into chick peas!
