Crockpot Chicken and Lentils

A very satisfying and rewarding dish that is worth starting the night before with delicious flavors, low fat, good protein and fiber.



  1. Soak the lentils in water and marinate the chicken (cut into large cubes) over night.
  2. In a large crockpot, place chopped chicken, chopped onion, celery, lentils, black beans, garlic and dry seasonings.
  3. Simmer remaining marinade from chicken, until reduced 50% and then add to crockpot along with the chicken stock.
  4. Cook on low-medium for 10 hours, until chicken can be broken up with wooden spoon.
  5. Add tomatoes and if using fresh herbs, approximately 1-2 hours before serving.
  6. Freeze leftovers for a quick dinner or divide for easy to heat lunches. The cayenne is optional.
  7. Note: have fun with the flavors and enjoy a comforting bowl on a cold day!
  8. Tip: soak the lentils with 1-2 teaspoons of baking soda overnight and be sure to rinse thoroughly to help minimize the effects of the gas with beans.

This sounds great - Thanks. I'm going to give it a try with pinto beans.
