Mediterranean Chicken

This is a very hearty and warm recipe. I love using the whole spices first which start with infusing the oil with rich and deep flavors. Onions, garlic, tomatoes and our bold and fragrant Garam Masala continue to add layers of flavor and create a beautiful, thick sauce for the chicken and Garbanzo beans to simmer in. Enjoy!

2 Pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast (cubed)
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Medium yellow onion, chopped
2 Black cardamoms
2 Green cardamoms
2 Whole cloves
2 Tablespoons garlic, chopped
2 Teaspoons White Jasmine Garam Masala
1 Teaspoon chili powder
1 Teaspoon kosher salt
1 8oz can chopped tomatoes
1 8oz can garbanzo beans
1/2 cup cilantro

Add olive oil to a pan, add cardamoms and cloves, let everything sizzle for a minute or so. Add the yellow onions, sauté  for a few minutes so it is sautéed well but not crisp. Add the chicken and all ground spices. Add garlic. Let everything cook for a few minutes. Add tomatoes and garbanzo beans. Cover the pan and leave everything to cook for 5-7 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and serve as an entrée with couscous or basmati rice.
