Directions

In a shallow dish, dredge chicken thighs in flour, shaking off excess. Season both sides with salt and pepper. In a large cast-iron or non- stick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over high heat. Add chicken, partially cover the pan and cook until the chicken is nicely browned, about 2 minutes per side (it will not be fully cooked). Remove from the skillet and set aside. Reduce heat to medium, add the remaining ½ tablespoon oil to the skillet. Add dried chili peppers and cook until they turn dark, about 2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and discard. Add onions and garlic to the skillet; cook until soft and lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Add paprika and marjoram and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add tomatoes, green peppers and salt and pepper to taste; cook for 5 minutes longer. Return the chicken to the skillet, along with ½ cup of the chicken stock. Cover and simmer until the chicken is tender and no longer pink inside, 20 to 25 minutes. Add chickpeas and the remaining ½ cup chicken stock; simmer for 5 to 8 minutes. Blot off any fat that rises to the surface with paper towels. Taste and adjust seasonings. Garnish with parsley.
