Recipe Ingredients for Chickpea and Chorizo Stew

3 pieces Garlic Cloves
4.25 oz Chorizo
18 oz Chicken, Breast, Meat Only
8 oz Chick Peas
1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
2 tsp Spices Ground Coriander
14 oz Tomatoes
3.5 oz Sherry
7 oz Chicken Stock
1 1tsp Olive Oil

Recipe Directions for Chickpea and Chorizo Stew

  1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas, and add to a large saucepan with cold water to cover. Bring the chickpeas to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer until tender - about one hour. Drain.

  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the chicken things until golden-brown all over. Remove from the pan and set aside. Then fry the chorizo in oil until just beginning to crisp.

  3. Add the onions, garlic and coriander and fry for 2-3 minutes until softened. Pour in the sherry and allow to bubble for a minute, then tip in the tinned tomatoes and the stock. Bring to the boil.

  4. Add the browned chicken and the chickpeas and simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is completely cooked through. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  5. Serve topped with flaked almonds and a swirl of olive oil.
