Lemon-Spiced Chicken With Chickpeas

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Sarah_Jayne

Another healthy looking recipe I have collected and intend to try. I am eating a lot of beans and pulses these days and another way to use chickpeas is never a bad thing. I collected this recipe from the February 2008 copy of the BBC Good Food Magazine. The recipe says that it is suitable for freezing.

This dish was really tasty, and like cluich said, it is better the next day. I will probably use chix thighs in this recipe, I think it will enhance the flavors because I do think with the breasts it lacked a little. That's why the 4 stars.
