Beans... Indian spiced chicken

I'm not a fan of beans... well, not all of them.  I would tell you I only really like black beans.  But I'll eat pinto beans.  I like refried beans.  And in the summer I eat green beans.

So when I started making this recipe I looked at the can of garbanzo beans in my pantry and thought... "I don't really want to eat those."  But for some reason I picked them up and brought them upstairs.

And opened them.

and put them in this recipe.

and liked them.

Come on!  Seriously, I don't like beans.

But these I eat.  I guess if you put peanut butter on anything it's not that bad. 

Try it.  I did, now you have to too.

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 onion, sliced
1 can tomatoes
1 can garbanzo beans
2 TBSP peanut butter
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of red pepper flakes

As we do nearly every time...
Saute the onions in olive oil over medium heat. 

Add the chicken until browned..

Add the tomatoes and let cook 5 minutes.

Add the peanut butter, beans and spices.

Let cook 5 minutes.

Serve over rice.  (And for a special treat, throw a cinnamon stick into the rice as it cooks...voila, cinnamon scented rice.  Amazing!)
