Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces. Add oil to pan. Saute chicken. While chicken browns, chop onion in food processor. Add onion to the pan and cook briefly. Add the cumin, ginger, paprika and a pinch of cayenne. Cook, stirring, until aromatic. Add broth, stir and bring just to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for a few minutes while you prepare the next vegetable. 2. Wash the zucchini. Trim the ends. Slice lengthwise; then slice half-circles 1/4-inch thick. Add to the stew. Bring to a boil; add the garbanzos. Reduce heat to simmer uncovered. Cook for about 4 minutes. Add the cooked rice and heat through: 1- 2 minutes. Taste and add salt, pepper(s) and cilantro. Thicken if needed with a slurry of cornstarch and water. Serve with a dab or two of lemon curd and optional slice of bread. Serves 2 generously.

Instead of ground ginger, we pureed fresh. We also used less chicken than he suggested 6 instead of 9 ounces). Our version was thick enough to be called a stew and we added the lemon curd condiment.
