With beef prices fluctuating week to week, chicken is a daily staple for many families
who're watching their grocery budget. Chicken offers great taste, high protein, low
fat and low caloric content served up in a multitude of tasty recipes.
For example, a whole chicken can be stuffed with breadcrumbs or chopped onions and
rosemary, and roasted just like Thanksgiving turkey or steamed with ginger and mushrooms
for a quick healthy Chinese meal.
Here's a delicious chicken recipe that's easy to cook, low sodium, high fiber and
inexpensive. And, it's great any time of the year!
You know what, you can even double the recipe and pop the rest in the freezer. On
days you don't have time to drop by the grocery store, you can still give your family
a comfy weeknight dinner with this freeze-now, serve-later dish. The flavors are
so good that you’ll eat every single drop in one sitting so make sure you make a
huge batch !

How to make chicken garbanzo stew
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!
