Chicken with Green Lentils

Chicken & Green Lentils

Green lentils are very healthy and I think they are delicious. A lot of people disagree with me but I do think it’s a required taste. 🙂 There are a lot of dishes you can make with lentils and this is a easy one.

See recipe below.







Ingredients (2 people):
2 chicken breasts
2 tbsp olive oil
3 carrots
1 onion
100 g green lentils
250 ml chicken stock
tiny bit of low fat creme
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp timian
salt & pepper
1/2 tsp of ginger


1. Mix the oil, timian, salt, pepper and ginger and rub the chicken breasts with the mixture. Place them in a baking dish and roast for 20-30 minutes on 175 degrees celsius, or until cooked through.
2. Put the lentils in a pot and follow the instructions on the package. The way I usually make them is 1 cup lentils to 2 cups of water. This time I put chicken stock in the water to give extra flavor. And let boil for 30 minutes.
3. In a pan saute the onion and garlic in oil until tender and golden brown. Then add carrots and fry for another 5 minutes. Then add chicken stock to the vegetables and a little bit of creme.

Note: Today I only had carrots and a tiny bit of celery in the fridge, but you can you any kind of vegetables for this dish. 🙂 If you want to keep it super healthy then leave out the low fat creme.

Enjoy 🙂
