Chicken & Chickpea Stew

I got the original recipe for this from feast from the Mideast 250 Sun-Drenched Dishes from the Lands of the Bible by Faye Levy but the recipes can be quite time consuming and containing too many steps for my liking, so I tend to modify them quite a bit. I also like to use different vegetables than what is listed, and a bit more of the spices.

  • 2 15-ounce cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 pounds chicken, chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 14-ounce can chopped tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 3 cups cups chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 green pepper, chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 carrots, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 small sweet potato, peeled and diced into 1-inch pieces

Heat oil in a stew pan and add onion, frying until golden. Add in garlic and chicken, along with some salt and pepper. Fry until chicken turns white. Add in remaining ingredients and bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer on low until sweet potato's are tender. That's it!

I honestly give up on bloggers text sizing. Whatever I try to do, blogger will choose what size to make my text. I'm seriously thinking of switching to Wordpress but that feels like a lot of work :/ Anybody who has made the switch... does Wordpress import from blogger?
