Chicken & Chickpea Salad

Sometimes.. a simple dish is all you need! 🙂
and a dish like this one is so easy to make and it’s so delicious.

How to cook chickpeas:
Before cooking dried chickpeas, the first thing you will have to do is soak them. Place chickpeas in a large bowl and cover completely with cold water. Allow to soak overnight, about 12 hours. Once chickpeas have soaked, drain and transfer to a  cooking pot. Cover with water twice the amount of chickpeas and bring to a boil. Cover and allow to simmer for approximately one hour. Allow to cool before serving them in a salad like this one!

Ingredients:

  • 250 g dried chickpeas
  • 3 tomato de-seeded, diced
  • 1/2 cup cucumbers, diced
  • 1 whole capsicum
  • 1-2 carrots
  • 2/3 cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

Simply chop all the ingredients and mix them together. I chopped mine into squares. Put into the fridge to chill and marinate in the lemon juice and olive oil mixture for about 30 minutes.
