Ingredients

    1 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs
    1 large zucchini, cut into cubes
    1 can (16 oz) garbanzo beans
    1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
    Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish
    1/2 Tbsp olive oil
    Salt and pepper to taste
    1 cup chicken stock or water
    1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
    1 tsp ground cumin
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Directions

1. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan or a wide pot over medium-high heat.

2. Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper, place them in the pan, and cook them for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until they brown thoroughly. Add the zucchini and continue cooking, stirring occasionally.

3. When the zucchini pieces have browned lightly, add the garbanzo beans, tomatoes, chicken stock, cayenne, cumin, and cinnamon. Turn the heat to low and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, until the chicken is tender and cooked through. Season to taste with more salt and pepper and garnish with chopped cilantro.
