This is a twist on my previous lentil soup recipe. The chicken gave it a great taste. A big thanks to my best friend for giving me the idea of adding it when she did so to make it a whole meal for her children.
One and a half cups of Red Lentils
How to Prepare:
Boil the chicken pieces, skimming the froth as it appears for about 30 minutes.
Cut the carrot and the potato into half inch cubes.
Heat a tablespoon of cooking oil in a large pot.
Add the diced onion and stir until soft.
Add the Red Lentils and 3/4 cup of diced carrot and potato and mix.
Add water to the pot until it covers the carrot/potato and lentils.
Cover the pot and keep it on a medium flame until the water begins to dry up.
Add 6 cups of hot water to the pot and the chicken pieces.
Add salt to the pot and stir.
Cook for 25 minutes.
