Don’t want to completely shock you all, but I’m finally posting on the “Sister’s Letters.” Greg has this thing for lentils lately and I tried a new recipe tonight. Greg hasn’t actually even tried it yet, but the recipe got a thumb’s up from three of my four kids who tried it. Even Josh liked it. That means a raving endorsement for this recipe.
Curried Lentils with Chicken and Potatoes
1 ½ cups lentils
1 ½ pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. ginger
2 tsp. curry powder
4 cups chicken broth
6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
2 tbsp. lime juice
Plain yogurt and cilantro for serving
Combine everything into slow cooker, except lime juice. Add 1 ¼ tsp salt and ¼ tsp pepper. Cook on low until done…. Approx. 5 hours for me but the recipe called for 7-8 hours. Shred chicken before serving. Add the lime juice. Served topped with dollops of sour creams and cilantro. I served it with homemade naan.
So very yummy!
Hillary, my kids want to try more Indian food. Will you re-post the recipe for tandoori chicken. Thanks!
