Very easy and simple to make...but delicious as well. Made this for the Herculean Challenge at the request of my guest artist! Thanks for sharing.

I made 1/2 recipe and loved the flavor! I love chickpeas. Served with Recipe #428353 for lunch and that made a great combination. Thanks for posting littlemafia. Made for Zwizzle Chicks for ZWT6.

I love chickpeas so I knew I'd like this dish. What took me by surprise was how much I loved it! The lemon flavor is wonderful and I can't wait to make it again. I made this almost as written. I was too hungry to wait for 1 hour of cooking and then cooling so I cooked it at a higher heat to hurry up the evaporation of the liquid. Made for ZWT6 Ssassy's
