Anyway, as much as I love cookbooks, I have also been loving the ability to google recipes on the internet. The other day I was trying to think of something different to do with the chicken I'd thawed for dinner. I looked through the cupboards to see what else I had on hand (it was soon time to go grocery shopping again so it was limited) and I noticed a can of chickpeas.
Now, most cookbooks don't have a cross-reference guide, so for quickly finding options based on ingredients available, the internet is the way to go. When I typed into google... crockpot recipe using chicken and chickpeas...I came up with quite a few options. Here's the one I picked.
