A fragrant spiced middle eastern chicken with chickpea and cranberry pilaf bursting with flavour and all cooked in one pot!
Every mouthful of this Middle Eastern Spiced Chicken with Chickpea & Cranberry Pilaf is bursting with middle eastern, spicy deliciousness! The pop of cranberry combined with the earthy coriander and cumin chicken skin will entice even the fussiest of eaters.
The restrained spiciness of this dish makes it a very family friendly, one pot dinner, suitable for entertaining or a mid week dinner.
This is a perfect recipe for introducing spice to your family menu, without hitting everyone over the head with the heat of chili. Of course, if you prefer something with a bit more kick, you can add some dried chili or cayenne pepper to the spice mix for the marinade.
And, if you are lucky, the kids will be so busy enjoying the crispy skin of the chicken and the sweet pop of cranberry that they won’t even notice the chickpeas!
