Recipe Ingredients for Italian Chicken and Chickpeas

2 tablespoons olive oil
15 oz chicken breasts, boneless skinless
2 tablespoons dried rosemary
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
15 oz can tomato sauce
1 teaspoon italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
15 oz garbanzo beans, drained

Recipe Directions for Italian Chicken and Chickpeas

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season the chicken with the rosemary on both sides; cook the chicken in the hot oil until browned evenly, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.

  2. Pour 1 tablespoon olive oil into the skillet. Cook and stir the garlic in the hot oil until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, cayenne pepper, sugar, bay leaf and red pepper flakes to the skillet; stir. Return the chicken to the skillet, cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 10 to 12 minutes.

  3. Stir the garbanzo beans into the skillet; continue cooking until the beans are heated,2 to 3 minutes more.
