Chicken & Lentils

If you are looking for something healthy and different, this is a good choice. This meal is tasty and healthy. Nothing fancy, just a good home cooked meal. This recipe stemmed from Bob's Red Mill Recipe Database. I have changed it a bit, so the nutritional Information might not be 100% accurate.

Chicken & Lentils

1 lb washed & sorted Lentils
6 cups Vegetable or Chicken Stock
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1/8 tsp Pepper
8 oz. Cooked, Skinless, Boneless Chicken Breast
1 small Yellow Onion, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup Celery, diced
1/2 cup Carrot, diced
1/2 cup broccoli
3 cloves Garlic, peeled & minced

Place all ingredients, except salt and meat in a heavy saucepan, cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Add meat, reduce heat to low and simmer about 45 minutes to 1 hour, stirring occasionally, until lentils are tender, but not mushy. Most of the water will be absorbed during the cooking process, so keep a close eye on the pot to make sure lentils do not stick. Mix in salt and pepper. Serve with rice or corn bread.
Makes 6 servings.
