TIP: Ras el Hanout is a curry spice blend that consists of a wide variety of spices. It varies from blend to blend and can have as many as 100 different spices. It can be found in the spice aisle of most grocery stores and has a floral aroma.

Toss the chickpeas and tomatoes in the bowl with the remaining spice oil. Tip the bowl into a 9x13 baking dish. Place the chicken breasts on top of the chickpeas and tomatoes. Squeeze over the juice of ½ a lemon and season with salt and black pepper. Bake for 20 minutes or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 170°F.
