READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by tomoko matsunaga

I made this for tonight. It was one of the recipe in the recipe book that I bought. Tasted good, I added some frozen beans and the book suggested to serve with couscous, but I didn't have one so I served with garlic and herb pasta. They were really yummy dinner and my sharemate liked them!

The flavours of this are amazing. Chickpeas especially good. I did cook longer than 10 min to melt the feta. Next time I would make with skinless chicken.
