moroccan chicken soup

Recipe by

The ginger and cinnamon come alive with the lemon juice! The leftovers have a beautiful flavor. You can add some broth if want it soupier. I like to eat up the broth and put the remaining chicken and chickpeas into one of the best chicken pot pies ever. Prep and cook time does not include soaking beans overnight.
