Chicken With Curry And Chickpeas

Chicken With Curry And Chickpeas

I decided to try this chicken with curry and chickpeas recipe because of my son, that loves both chicken and chickpeas. But, as often happens, we all liked it very much.

It is a recipe that is perfectly tasty and spiced, even if I didn’t use caraway nor cardamom, present in the original recipe). It is that kind of recipe that really satisfies our palate.

It is true that I cook always less meat. But, for sure, amongst the ones I cook, chicken is the one I cook most often. Probably because it is white meat, and so supposed to be healthier, but probably also because it allows such  lot of variations and matches.

If you’re traditional regarding cooking, don’t be impressed by the coconut milk present in this chicken with curry recipe. It doesn’t give any exotic flavor, but only helps creating the delicious sauce that comes with this chicken and chickpeas.

I inspired myself for this recipe reading this one at Il Mestolo Birichino blog. I said inspired because I have changed quantities and condiments.
