Chickpea stew is a comforting one-pot dinner flavored with coconut milk, turmeric, garlic and ginger. Serve over brown rice and garnish with fresh herbs. The chicken is optional, but delicious.
This is a truly easy recipe that puts a delicious meal on your table with very little effort. Chicken, chickpeas and potatoes are braised in coconut milk, garlic, ginger and turmeric, creating a fragrant and flavorful chickpea stew.
This one-pot chicken dinner is mild enough for kids but also has rich flavors that will keep adults interested too.
After an hour in the oven, the chicken is tender and the chickpeas and potatoes are soft and creamy. This is comfort food, with no guilt.
What I really love about this one-pot chicken recipe is that it's really easy to make but doesn't taste like a simple meal. The flavors are so satisfying and cozy, I'm sure you'll love it too.

Make it Vegan
This recipe can easily be made into a lovely vegan meal. Just leave out the chicken and add more potatoes. I've made it this way plenty of times and it's really good!
