Butter Chickpeas

Have you had that delicious Indian dish, with a creamy sauce that has an explosion of spices covering a piece of chicken that almost melts in your mouth.

It’s amazing!

When I was pregnant with Kaleb, I couldn’t stomach chicken. I actually still can’t – but there is a lot of meals that I miss. This is one of them.



1c Rice
2c Water or Chicken Broth
1 tsp Olive Oil
1 Medium onion, chopped
3 Cloves finely chopped
1 15oz can Chickpeas, low sodium

Add 1c rice and 2c water into sauce pan, bring to a boil – cover and let simmer.
