    This recipe is adapted from a Family Circle recipe circa 1999. I have tweaked it to my liking but the integrity of the dish remains throughout. It's super simple and full of flavor.

      This was a good recipe, but I'm not sure that I liked it as well as some other similar dishes that I've tried. My husband was the one that followed the recipe this time, not me, and he had a little trouble getting the steps to match what he was actually looking at as the dish came together. I'm not sure if he was just trying to be too literal or if the recipe could use some tweaking, but the result ended up a little bit overcooked. Most of the chickpeas went uneaten though we both enjoy them. Thanks for giving us something different to try though, and I hope plenty of other reviewers will be able to enjoy the recipe in our place.
