Lentils are a legume which are similar to beans, chickpeas and soybeans. There are different types of lentils, green, brown, red or yellow, and specialty lentils. For this dish use whatever lentils you have in your pantry.
To add body to this dish add plenty of your favorite vegetables. We recommend adding carrots, celery, bell peppers, onions and kale for the best flavor profile. When adding your vegetables and lentils make sure they’re in an equal amounts.
In addition to your legumes and vegetables, add some chicken to add a rich meaty taste to complete this meal. First brown your chicken in the pot so that you have a nice crispy skin. As your chicken browns it will create flavor and form brown bits on the bottom of the pot which are so tasty and will come up as you cook your other ingredients.
All together theses amazing ingredients make the perfect dinner with minimal cleanup. For another amazing one pot meal check out our Potato and Leek soup. Its a simple dish with a ton of depth of flavor.
