My family loved this one-pot meal! (Well, two pots if you count the couscous.) I ended up using the whole can of chick peas rather than just 1 cup because we love 'em.

Made this last evening and it was excellent. Was surprized at how much broth that ended up, was almost lie a stew. Still was a great dish and I looke forward to the leftovers and making it again!

This worked great in the crockpot! I mixed the spices, rubbed them on the chicken, put everything except the garbanzos in the crockpot and cooked it on low for about 6 hours. I added the garbanzos about 45 minutes before we ate. My not-usually-picky boys didn't care for the stuff besides the chicken, but I thought it was all delicious!

Oops! - to add to my other comment... I also decreased the broth to about 1 cup.

This was a great recipe! I agree with others in reducing the amount of broth unless you prefer to have more of a stew consistency, which is fine too! I paired it with a garlic couscous with dried cranberries, apricots and feta and it was great! Love the idea of rubbing the spices right on the chicken and I will definitely do that next time!

I made this for a large group of girlfriends and they loved it. I used the crockpot method as well. Next time I will try reducing the broth and rubbing the spices on the chicken.
