Add the onion and cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add the wine and cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until almost evaporated, about 2 minutes.
Return the chicken to the skillet.
Add the chickpeas and 3/4 cup of the chicken stock. Cover and cook over moderately low heat until the chicken is tender, 17 to 20 minutes. Discard the bay leaves and transfer the chicken to a platter. Stir the pepper strips and parsley into the chickpeas and season with salt and pepper; add a little chicken stock to the chickpeas if they seem dry. Spoon the chickpea mixture over the chicken and serve.
