    We LOVE this recipe! In fact after the first time making it, I double the recipe everytime so we have leftovers for lunches. I follow the recipe as written, but I usually have boneless skinless chicken thighs. With the recipe doubled and boneless skinlesss thighs, I bake it in a 9×13 for 35 mins then switch to broiler on high for 5 to 10 mins until the chicken thighs get a nice color on top, it also makes the chickpeas nice and toasty :). Thanks for a new favorite chicken dish!

    Just made it, delicious quick and easy! Thank you very much. Typically I don’t like thighs. Also, you can cook it longer if you don’t like your thigh meat so juicy.

    This was perfect! I did add some ground coriander and cumin as recommended and the flavour was even further elevated. Thank you!

    Thanks so much! I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs (rolled up to keep moist) and added a bag of baby spinach. Served with rice and sliced tomatoes. This was delicious and so easy.

    Oh my Gosh!!! My husband and I loved this so much. Thank you for this recipe … I used boneless skinless thighs, but otherwise followed your recipe exactly. It is delicious!! I served roasted asparagus on the side.

    Simple, tasty, and flexible. I browned the thighs to a crisp, then poured off the fat I added fennel to the onions and deglazed the pan with them, then added the chicken to the skillet (along w/ some pickeled peppers) and put the works in the oven. Perfect. I’m making them again today

    I used 2 Tbsp Hungarian Paprika but did everything else the same. It was a HIT!! Will definitely make this again. I’m not usually a fan of chicken thighs, I don’t like the skin and additional fat, but this was good. I served it with roasted root vegetables seasoned with olive oil, cumin, sea salt and pepper.

    This turned out really well, we used boneless skinless breasts and started the onions first in the oven then cooked it for only 30 minutes. Juicy, flavorful chicken, chickpeas and onions, great recipe! We all enjoyed it for dinner, and my son helped make it because it’s a simple family-friendly recipe.

    This was excellent, but there is one important modification. Before putting in the oven, the chicken should be seated in a skillet to get the skin browned and crispy. Then take chicken out of pan, and throw in the ovens to sauté for a bit. Then put all in skillet to roast in oven. But it really is easy and soooo delicious!!

    How would you alter the cook time if using boneless thighs? And would everything else still be finished cooking with the change in time? Thank you, and I love so many of your dishes!

      Hi Heidi, I think I would sauté the onions first and then probably only bake the dish for 30 to 35 minutes. It all depends on the size and starting temperature of the thighs.

    To be honest, I wasn’t blown away with the chicken part of this dish, mainly due to the fact that I didn’t like the skin. I think I would make this again with boneless skinless thighs instead, the chewy skin didn’t go down well for me texture-wise in the whole dish. I absolutely loved the chickpeas though! The spice mix was excellent. I added some cumin, cinnamon and coriander.
