Chickpea and Chicken Curry with Spinach

Yum


This is a satisfying curry made out of protein packed chickpeas, chicken and spinach.

My son and daughter love chickpea curry, but my son does have one complaint... where is the meat?  He is just like his father... they have to have some kind of meat in a meal to make it a complete meal for them.   My daughter and I can totally forgo the the "meat" part of the meal and eat this as a completely vegetarian meal, but I have to satisfy the men in my life so I added some chicken to the dish. 

My son was so happy when he saw the pieces of chicken in the curry.  He was prepared to eat this dish for every meal until it was all gone.  Which is what they did (no complaints from me since I didn't have to cook again until it was all gone). 

They loved it so much, I had to make this curry again within a week.  Good thing it comes together pretty easily and is very budget friendly.
