    Default Moroccan chicken with eggplant garbanzo ragout

    Moroccan Chicken With Eggplant Garbanzo Ragout
    South Beach Diet

    Don't be scared off by the number of ingredients in this dish; it all comes together quickly for a hearty yet slightly exotic meal. Remember to save some of the liquid drained from the beans for your sauce.

    Serves 2

    1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    1 teaspoon sherry vinegar
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    1 teaspoon ground coriander (or fresh, but use more)
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    Salt and pepper
    2 (6-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1 medium (about 8 ounces) eggplant, unpeeled, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
    1/2 medium onion, chopped
    1 cup garbanzo beans and 1/4 cup liquid drained from can
    8 ounces cherry tomatoes, halved
    2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

    Instructions
    1. Combine a teaspoon of the oil with the vinegar, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, salt, and pepper in a glass dish. Add chicken breasts; turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate for up to 6 hours.

    2. Heat remaining tablespoon of oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook, 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Using tongs, transfer chicken to platter; tent with foil to keep warm. In same skillet, cook eggplant and onion 8 minutes, until soft and slightly browned, stirring often. Stir in garbanzo beans with liquid, tomatoes, and lemon juice. Cook 3 minutes, smashing the tomatoes with a wooden spoon and stirring to blend flavors and warm through. Transfer to platter with chicken; garnish with parsley.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    21 carbs is not very much. Your body NEEDS some carbs, and at least these are healthy ones!!!!

    I'd probably put a little chili pepper in this or something, but it's to taste.

    And chilli increases your metabolisum for 30 minutes after consuming so thoes carbs will just be eaten up.

    This sounds so good, I'm going to try it out..well when I can go shopping next anyway, hehe.
