Chicken Chana Handi (Chicken with chick peas in clay pot)

Handi is basically a clay pot... and its a deep, narrow-mouthed cooking vessel used in Pakistani/Desi cooking but now adays that's only a name to dish... we can just cook in a normal pot.. but if you easily find clay pot and cook in it that would be awesome... and if you have presentable handi you can serve in it... and i saw this recipe on a cooking show made by a cooking expert Shireen Anwer... so the ingredients are:

chicken boneless 1/2 kg (1 lbs - 1 1/2 lbs) 
chick peas 1 - 2 cups
