  • The first step is to heat the oil in a skillet, preheat it, and add the chickpeas with the following seasonings: cumin, pepper, and salt. Cook for around 12 minutes until the grains have a golden color.

  • For the following step, a blender is needed. Put the parsley in it and mix very well; add fresh lemon juice, honey, olive oil, and salt; and blend again.

  • Take the avocado, cucumber and red onion and cut everything into thin slices. 

  • Preheat the oven to 350° F. Roast the chicken breast in a hot oven for 35 minutes, until it is fully cooked. Afterwards, take it out and cut it into small pieces.

  • Now it is time to combine all the ingredients in a large serving bowl. Add the prepared chickpeas with the cooked chicken, then the parsley mixture. Do not forget about the sliced avocado, cucumbers, and red onion.


  • How can one tell when chickpeas are done? If the grains are already cooked, they are incredibly soft and simple to squish with fingertips.

Bon Appetit!
