Chicken with Chickpeas and Preserved Lemon; French Health Care — 9 Comments

  1. I got one of those test kits too – mine too went into the bin but I am absolutely sure our government does not do reminders – its every man/women for him/herself in reality !!

  2. Congratulations on the sunshine! Brrrr about the mammogram. (I never understand why they don’t call a spade a spade and label it extreme-breast-pressing. It makes me think of chicken piccata.)

    What a good idea to add chickpeas to this chicken and preserved lemon dish. It sounds wonderful.

  3. As for the hemoccult test, the hardest part of it (aside from the “ew” factor) for me having to avoid red foods for the duration of the test.

  4. Love the flavors in this salad! I’m still trying to figure out new uses for preserved lemons so this is perfect!

  5. We belong to an HMO here in California that reminds us gently of medical appointments we need to make and sends us the “poop test” as we call it without our asking for it. I actually like the reminders – when else would I ever remember?

    Glad you have some sunshine at last. I heard on the news that Europe is drowned this season.

  6. Kate, I get reminders LOL

    Elizabeth, mammograms seem gentler here, for some reason. I’m developing a real love of preserved lemons… – too bad about the food avoidance – I think I’d avoid the hemoccult (no choice, tho….)

    Joanne, I’m getting very creative – I love it.

    Zoomie, it is nice to know the reminders will come – otherwise I’d probably intentionally forget… Very wet and lots of flooding at the moment. Not in France, thankfully.

  7. Yeah…. got one for colon cancer dépistage and have so far ignored it and am waiting for the follow up and the chastisement. Good for them. But oh if all healthcare solutions were as good as this chicken with chickpeas dish. Beautiful and really perfect for this lousy weather.
