This was lovely They only thing I did differently was included a tin of chopped tomatoes instead of passata. Also, I roasted the chicken separately and roasted onions, carrots and peppers and served this on the lentils. It was really lovely and the roasted veg added necessary texture. I used red split lentils, the whole thing was lovely, and I would add more liquid next time and serve it as a soup with crusty bread as an alternative to the main course with chicken. It could also be done with vegetable stock for a vegetarian version. Thanks for this recipe, it was easy, really tasty and also healthy which was a definite bonus. I will be using this recipe a lot in the future. Yummy - 30 Nov 2012
I have made this twice, each time for two people, and the ingredients scaled down perfectly. No tweaks, no twists, just as is. An absolutely delicious recipe. Thank you Lorraine. - 21 Oct 2016
This has become one of our favourite dishes, I never thought I would see my husband eat lentils! Very easy to make and very tasty. I used green lentils and chopped tomatoes as I am not too keen on passata (too sloppy!). - 03 Feb 2014
