  1. Heat the olive oil in a frypan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir the onion and chicken until the onion is dark brown and the chicken is golden; about 5 minutes.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium and stir in the garlic, curry powder, cinnamon and clove. Cook and stir until the spices are fragrant and the garlic has softened slightly; 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Add the chickpeas, tomato sauce, tomato paste, lemon juice, salt, black pepper and water. Bring to a boil over high heat then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook 10 minutes.
  4. Uncover and increase heat to medium-high and allow the sauce to reduce to your desired consistency. Stir in additional water if too thick. Garnish with coriander to serve.
