Quick and easy recipe for delicious chicken. One of our family top recipes. I usually prepare three or four times more, divide it by portions and freeze.

  • 1 tbs. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic
  • 1 onion, any type, organic
  • 4 chicken breast, skinless, organic, free-range
  • 1 cinnamon stick, organic
  • 1 tsp. coriander, ground, organic
  • 1 tsp. cumin powder, organic
  • 1 lemon, fresh, organic
  • 14 oz. chickpeas, cooked, organic
  • 1 c. chicken stock, organic, free-range
  • 9 oz. spinach, fresh, organic

Heat the oil in a large frying pan, then fry the onions gently for 5 mins. Turn up the heat and add the chicken, frying for about 3 mins until golden.

Stir in the spices and lemon zest, fry for 1 more min, then tip in the chickpeas and stock. Put the lid on and simmer for 5 mins.

Season to taste, then tip in spinach and re-cover. Leave to wilt for 2 mins, then stir through. Squeeze over the lemon juice just before serving.
