Spicy Indian Chicken with Chickpeas

By Sara Snow

I like to spice things up in the kitchen; for variety’s sake, and health’s sake too. Turmeric has been shown to help with digestive disorders, the aches and pains from arthritis, and even prevent certain types of cancer.

As always, use organic ingredients wherever possible.

Ingredients

Olive oil for pan
2 cloves garlic – chopped
1 small onion – chopped
2 organic chicken breasts – cut into small pieces
1 cup coconut milk
½ cup water
1 green bell pepper – chopped
1 red bell pepper – chopped
2 T tomato paste
2 t curry powder (can also use paste)
1 t turmeric
¼ t coriander
2 teaspoons salt
Dash of pepper
1 can Chickpeas

Method

Heat oil in a skillet. Sauté garlic and onions.

Add chicken and sauté for 3 minutes.

Mix together ½ cup coconut milk and water. Add to pan and continue to simmer chicken until tender but cooked through.

Whisk tomato paste and remaining coconut milk into the liquid in the pan.

Add peppers and spices and simmer 5 minutes.

Toss in chickpeas. Stir to coat and simmer 10 minutes more.

Cook them, continue stirring, for a couple minutes till well coated, then transfer them to the foil lined baking sheet, and bake them for 1hour , carefully stirring them every 15 minutes.

Cool on a rack, with occasional stirring, then when able to seperate them with your hands, and completely cooled, store in air tight container, cookie tin, or glass jar with lid.

Bag, tag and gift it.
