Moroccan Chicken

1 cn chick peas/garbanzos
3 lb chicken pieces
1 t turmeric
1/2 t cumin ground
1/8 t cayenne pepper
2 T oil
1 lg onion, finely chopped
juice of 1 lemon

Dry chicken pieces with paper towels. Combine turmeric and cumin with 1 t salt and the cayenne pepper and rub into the chicken. Let stand for 15 minutes. (I use less chicken when I make this dish, sometimes I also substitute boneless breast or tenders) Heat oil in a frying pan and brown chicken pieces on all sides. Remove to a plate and add onion to pan. Fry gently until soft, add garlic and cook a few seconds. Pour onion mixture into chick peas and add chicken pieces and 1 Tablespoon of the lemon juice. Cover and simmer gently until chicken and chick peas are tender and liquid is considerably reduced. About 1/2 hour. Taste and add salt if necessary, and more lemon juice to give a pleasant tang. Remove chicken pieces carefully, place chick peas and liquid in a deep
dish, put the chicken on top and garnish with lemon wedges.
