  • In a Dutch oven or very large skillet, cook the onion and green pepper over medium heat until softened – about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and oregano and cook, stirring, for just one minute. Now add the tomatoes, chickpeas, chicken broth, parsley, salt and pepper.
  • Cook, stirring a few times, for about 5 minutes. Now add the chicken pieces and olives, and continue to cook, uncovered, for 15 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • That’s pretty much it, folks. Serve chicken and sauce spooned over hot cooked rice or couscous.
