Rice and Chicken. Chicken and rice.
It's my stand-by. It's easy, it's delicious, and I can mix it up a little with spices or sauces or seasonings or veggies each time I make it. But after awhile it still gets a little boring.
How many options do we really have, though? Chicken is one of the options that we can affordably and easily prepare on a regular basis, and everyone likes it. So we make it once a week or so, and maybe we get a little tired of it, but we do it anyway.
So when there is a recipe that changes things even more and gives that old stand-by a genuinely new flavor kick, I tend to jump at the chance.
Sometimes it is a new favorite... which after awhile becomes another stand-by. And sometimes it's not the best thing we've ever tasted. But at least it was different.
This lentil chicken recipe is one of the really good ones. It is still chicken, but it's just different enough to make it interesting. And if you like lentils, I think you'll like it too.
This recipe makes about 2 servings, but of course you can double the serving to make it for more, or to have left-overs during the week. Enjoy!
We hope you enjoy this dish as much as you did making it!
