There is something about chickpeas. I love them as a dip, in salads, cooked into meals…really in every way. Chickpeas are healthy and really good source of protein.
I hope your weekend was great, filled with much fun. If you had to much calories with Easter goodies, now is time to have a nice salad for lunch or dinner. A nice salad, like this Chicken Chickpea Salad can be done in 15 minutes and it will make satisfying, healthy lunch or dinner. I always keep romaine lettuce in my refrigerator , that way we eat it every day:-)
I also always have chicken breast at home. I buy them on big batches and freeze them in smaller portions in small sandwich bags.
