My note: this is delicious! I used skinless, boneless chicken. Didn't have cumin so I used adobo seasoning. I'm sure parsley could be subbed for the cilantro if you don't like cilantro. The tomatoes and garbanzo beans were fantastic. I placed it all on a platter, squirted some fresh lemon juice all over the chicken/beans/tomatoes and seasoned with a little fine sea salt.
