August 07, 2020 0 Comments

This is the recipe that was on our original 2018 packaging. The big differences are the optional ingredients; dried apricots, flaked almonds and green olives.

Shopping List & Prep (serves 4) 

  • 1½ lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts (or substitute with tofu and/or vegetables like carrots or sweet potatoes) cut into 1-2" pieces
  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced
  • ¼ small bunch fresh Italian parsley, roughly chopped—approx. ¼ cups
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large lemon, cut into 6 thick slices
  • 1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 15.5 oz can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
