in my search for healthy foods i came across a recipe i love. it’s for chicken baked with lentils and it’s really, really good. really. it may not look pretty but it’s warm and stewy and delicious. i first found it on the wednesday chef when i was looking for a dish to bring to my friend and her family.
i used smaller chicken thighs (not drumsticks) and added extra celery for good measure. the chicken comes out incredibly tender and the lentils are perfect and flavorful. it’s meant to be served with mashed potatoes but this is a potato free zone now and really it was filling and satisfying on it’s own.
i managed not to lick the dish. but just barely.
