  1. Place flour in a shallow dish and dredge chicken thighs, shaking off excess flour. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large cast-iron over high heat. Add the chicken, partially cover the pan and cook until the chicken is nicely browned, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Reduce heat to medium and add the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to the pan. Add chiles and cook until they turn dark, about 2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and discard. Add onions and garlic to the pan; cook until soft and lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Add paprika and marjoram and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add tomatoes, green peppers and salt and pepper to taste; cook for 5 minutes longer. Return the chicken to the pan, along with 1/2 cup chicken broth. Cover and simmer until the chicken is tender and no longer pink inside, 20 to 25 minutes Add chickpeas and the remaining 1/2 cup chicken broth; simmer for 5 to 8 minutes. Blot any fat that rises to the surface with paper towels. Taste and adjust seasonings. Garnish with parsley.
