Garbanzo Chicken Stew

When I was working at the University and Al was home, running his business out of our house, he cooked supper every night.  This was great, I didn’t have to cook when I got home, and Al got some cooking experience.  He really doesn’t like to cook at all, so I was very grateful that he did it for me, and we found a lot of easy recipes for him to make.  This is one of them, and when he made it he used a couple of cans of garbanzo beans – easy peasy!  But this time I wanted to try it with dry beans, instead, and it turned out great!  The garbanzo beans have a marvelous flavor, much better than the canned.  And instead of cooking sherry, I use Gallo Cocktail Dry Sherry, it’s a lot cheaper and better tasting (imho) than cooking sherry and doesn’t have the added salt.

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
