Flavorful and flexitarian this dinner will impress your guests and family!


  • 2 lbs Chicken Breasts, diced into 1-inch pieces
  • 2, 15oz Cans Chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 Large Onion, diced
  • 2 Lemons, zested and juiced
  • 4 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 3/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 3 tsp Oregano
  • 2 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp Ground Black Pepper


  1. Set out two separate mixing bowls, one will be for the chicken, the other for the chickpeas. (Note: If you do not mind the meat and chickpeas mixed together then feel free to use one large bowl!)
  2. To one bowl, mix up the marinade. Add the olive oil, diced onion, garlic, lemon zest and juice, oregano, salt and pepper. Whisk together to combine.
  3. Pour half of the marinade into the other bowl. You should have half of the marinade in each bowl.
  4. Add the chickpeas to one bowl and cover then add the chicken to the other bowl and cover it. Place both bowls into the refrigerator to marinate for at least 1 hour and up to 6 hours.
  5. When you are ready to cook. Heat two large cast iron pans over medium high heat. Add 2 tsp olive oil to each pan.
  6. When the pans are heated, add the chickpeas to one pan and the chicken to the other.
  7. Cook the chicken and chickpeas, stirring frequently, for 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the chickpeas are crispy. The cast iron pan will help to crisp and slightly char the chicken and chickpeas. This is good flavor! (Note that the chicken should be cooked through to 165 F).
  8. Serve the chicken and chickpeas over whole wheat naan bread, tzatizki sauce, tomato and cucumber salad and top with feta and kalamata olives. Enjoy!


  • Eat this with Whole Wheat Naan bread topped with Tzatziki Sauce and Tomato & Cucumber Salad
  • Top with feta cheese and kalamata olives
