DIRECTIONS

  • Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat butter and oil in 12-inch sauté pan over medium-high heat. When butter foaming subsides, add chicken; sauté until browned on both sides, moving around to brown evenly, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Discard all but thin film of fat from pan. Add onion, carrots, and turnips; sauté, stirring frequently to prevent scorching, until pan juices evaporate, 4 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant.
  • Return chicken and accumulated juices to pan, moving vegetables to top. Add thyme sprigs, spices, chickpeas, and reserved chickpea cooking liquid; bring to boil. Lower heat, cover, and barely simmer until chicken is cooked through, basting three or four times, about 25 minutes. Place portion of chicken on each plate; top with vegetables. Ladle juices over both chicken and vegetables and serve immediately.
