  • 1

  • 2

    teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1/2

    large fennel bulb - (6 oz)

  • 1

    red bell pepper

  • 1

  • 1 3/4

    cups canned crushed tomatoes - (15 oz can)

    cup water

  • 1

    pound boneless skinless chicken breast halves

  • 3

    tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Directions

Cook onion, garlic, cinnamon stick, saffron, pepper flakes, bay leaf, and clove in oil in a 4-quart heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 8 minutes. Trim fennel stalks flush with bulb, discarding stalks, and trim any discolored outer layers. Cut bulb lengthwise into 1/4-inch wedges. Cut peppers into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Add fennel and bell peppers to onion mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, broth, and water and simmer, covered, until peppers are tender, about 8 minutes. Rinse and drain chickpeas. Pat chicken dry and cut crosswise into 3/4-inch-thick slices. Season with salt and pepper. Add chicken and chickpeas to vegetable mixture and simmer, stirring occasionally, until chicken is cooked through, about 6 minutes. Stir in parsley and salt and pepper. This recipe yields 4 servings.
