    • Total time: 40 minutes 40 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 2 carrots, halved lengthways and thickly sliced
    • 2 Chicken Breast Fillets, cut into strips (about 300g)
    • 3tsp Bart Ras El Hanout Spice Mix

    • 410g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

Stir in the spice mix and cook, stirring, for another minute or so.
    2. Add the vegetables back to the pan, then add the tomatoes and the stock. Stir in the chickpeas, season and bring to a simmer for 20 minutes, covered, until the chicken is cooked through and there is no pink meat. Stir in the coriander, and serve with couscous or crusty bread.

    Cook's tips

    If you have some leftover cooked chicken, you could use this instead of raw chicken. Just add the cooked chicken 5 minutes before the end of cooking, until heated through.

    Drinks recommendation

    Rosé is a perfect choice for light, evening suppers. El Prado Tempranillo Rosé 2007, Valencia, Spain, is juicy and berry-scented, with a refreshing acidity that’s ideal for tomato based sauces.
