This is a delicious recipe. I ended up using a bit more chicken thighs (almost 3lbs) and used more peas (I like them). I also backed off a tad on the flour. I imagine you could substitute chick peas if you like instead of regular peas (or green beans as the other reviewer did). One thing I think this recipe is missing, and I added it to the leftover stew is Worcestershire sauce (I used a L&P low sodium). Added a needed zip I think.
