HI there: I would like to make something with chicken and lentils tonight. Was thinking of a stew/soup. Any other ideas? Thanks. Jen

    Do you like Indian food? I immediately though of a chicken and lentil curry recipe. The dish is usually called Chicken Dhansak. This recipe looks about right: http://www.videojug.com/film/how-to-c...

      I wouldn't over complicate it. A fried or roasted chicken breast or thigh plated on a bed of lentils prepared in a garlic seasoned chicken broth is a good start to a nice meal. Pop some yellow or green veggies along side. Don't salt the lentils until they're done. Salt in the cooking water can make them tough.

        How about Moroccan Chicken and Lentils? Beware, this recipe serves 12...so I just cut it in half..I like to brown the chicken pieces before adding, too, just a personal pref:
