2 courgettes, cut into thick wedges
1 large onion, peeled

½ pound beef breast or chicken thigh, skinned

Preparation

Pour the oil in a large pot, and lightly sautee all vegetables until they change their color.
Add the beef/chicken and sear on all sides.
Add the chickpeas and seasoning, cover with water (about an inch above the meat and vegetables.
Cook over low heat until meat is done and soft and vegetables are done (I cook it in a pressure cooker for about 45 minutes).
Taste and fix seasoning to taste. 
Serve over Couscous, or eat on its own.
