2 lbs bone-in chicken breasts, skinless
2 tsp garam masala (Indian seasoning)
1 tsp garlic salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp canola oil
1 1/4 lbs small red potatoes

3/4 cups (6 oz) chicken broth, low-sodium
8 oz mushrooms
Fresh thyme, chopped (optional)
1 cup garbanzo beans, low-sodium, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup golden raisins
2 Tbsp lemon juice
