- Cook Time: Approximately 30 minutes.
- Season chicken with salt and brown in a large saucepan (or pot) over medium heat.
- Remove from pan and set aside.
- Saute onion, garlic, carrots and celery in the same pan.
- When tender, stir in ginger, paprika, cumin, oregano and turmeric, stir fry for about 1 minute, then mix in broth and tomatoes.
- Return chicken to pan, reduce heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes.
- Add zucchini to pan and bring to simmering once again; cover pan and cook for about 15 minutes, or until zucchini is cooked through and tender.

- Original recipe calls for a can of chickpeas to be added with the zucchini. I have omitted this and instead, serve this dish with spinach couscous.
