This is kind of a 'whatever is handy now' recipe.
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Roasting chicken 3 Pound, cut into bite size pieces (Deboned)
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), crushed
  Onion 1 , chopped
  Potato 1 Large, diced
  Ground cumin 1 Teaspoon
  Ground coriander 1 Teaspoon (Seed)
  Ground black pepper 1 Teaspoon
  Crushed red pepper flakes 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Unsalted natural style peanut butter 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Canned chickpeas 15 Ounce, rinsed (Garbanzo Beans, Drained)

In a large skillet with a tight-fitting lid, heat oil over medium high heat. Add chicken, and brown quickly. Remove chicken from pan. Reduce heat to medium low, and add garlic, onion and potato to the pan; saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Season with cumin, coriander, black pepper, red pepper and salt. Do not let garlic brown.
Mix in water and browned chicken, and any accumulated juices. Place lid on skillet and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes.
Remove lid, and stir in the peanut butter and garbanzo beans. Make sure the peanut butter is blended in. Replace lid to simmer for 10 more minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and potatoes are tender. Remove from heat, adjust seasoning, and serve.
