    Sarah_Jayne's Note:

    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.

      Okay, I was going to give this only three stars, because when I first cooked and ate it it was really quite bland. However, I threw the leftovers in the fridge and had some later, and it was very tasty! Next time, I think I'll marinate the cut-up chicken in the broth, spices, and the lemon zest before cooking. The flavor was there in leftovers. I just think it needs more time to permeate the dish. Thanks for posting, ER.

      I really enjoyed this meal. The chicken, spinach and chickpeas are really great together. Next time I make this I may up the spices just a tad. Thanks English_Rose.
