  1. Mix all of the spices and 60ml olive oil in to a paste. Rub this over the chicken and place it in the fridge for about two hours. (Wash your hands afterwards!)

  2. Pre-heat the oven to 160°C (gas mark 3).

  3. Heat the remaining olive oil in a medium-sized oven proof pot. Place the chicken in the warm pot and fry until brown. Add the onion and garlic and fry for another 5 minutes. Season well with salt and black pepper.

  4. Add the chickpeas, tomatoes and stock. Cover the pot with its lid and bring to the boil. Place this in your pre-heated oven and bake for 90 minutes.

  5. Turn the oven up to 200°C (gas mark 6), remove the lid and roast uncovered for another 30 minutes.

  6. Remove it from the oven and sprinkle over coriander and almonds. Serve with couscous or rice.

  7. TIP If you prefer, you can use lamb shanks, oxtail or a whole deboned leg of lamb instead of chicken.

I'm so pleased with Pampers Baby Dry! The Sensitive Wipes smell great and the nappies keep my baby dry all night. Not only that, they aren't as bulky, have cute designs and are stretchy. All round - great!
