Crispy Chicken with Chickpea Stew

August 28

Take the time to crisp these chicken thighs, I can assure you the extra effort will be worth it. The flavours of the chickpea stew work so well with the crispiness of the chicken skin. Heaven. Red pesto is a flavour powerhouse which brings this dish together, but you can also switch this for green pesto if preferred.

Cook 8-10 minutes or until skin is crispy, remove any excess fat. Turn the chicken thighs and add the stock, chickpeas, pesto and stir together. Continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes or until the chicken has cooked.
  2. Once the sauce has slightly reduced season to taste and stir through the spinach and serve.
