This was an easy way to use up some leftover chicken and chickpeas. (I didn't include the quantity, extrapolate)

Toss chickpeas with Chimichurri (search epicurious for a recipe) sauce, cooked chicken, cherry tomatoes and steamed or sauteed swiss chard for a quick lunch -- you can do this in the microwave too, add chicken a bit of chicken broth, chopped swiss chard and the beans. Microwave about 2 minutes, till food is hot and chard is soft. Or leave out the chard, and add fresh spinach or arugula to the hot chicken and beans so it wilts slightly. Then add the tomatoes and chimichurri. Other good additions: roasted bell peppers or fresh one to add more color and vegtables.
