  • About

This dish, in which chicken is combined with red lentils, is really like a hearty stew, just perfect for cold winter days. You could add vegetables to it as well, such as shelled peas or 1cm/½ inch lengths of green beans. If you do this, put in the vegetables at about the same time as you put in the lemon juice.

Traditionally, rice is served on the side but, if you like, you could have this dish with thickly cut slices of some dark, crusty bread.
