Moroccan Chicken Chickpea Stew Recipe

(serves 6)



1 large whole chicken

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 onion, finely chopped

3 cloves garlic

1 tablespoon grated ginger

1 teaspoon ground paprika

½ teaspoon ground turmeric

1 teaspoon mixed spice

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 sticks celery, sliced

2 tomatoes, chopped

¾ cup white wine

Remove the skin from chicken. Using a pair of very sharp scissors or poultry shears, cut the chicken in half and then into individual portions.


Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over high heat. Place chicken pieces and brown on all sides.


Add onion, garlic, ginger, paprika, turmeric, mixed spice and cinnamon. Cook for about 1 minute, or until the spices are aromatic.


Stir in chickpeas, celery, tomatoes, wine and stock. Cover with a lid and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low an d let stew simmer for about 1 hour, or until the chicken is very tender and the liquid has thickened slightly.


Serve over couscous or brown rice and garnish with cilantro sprigs. Enjoy!
