Chicken Lentil Soup

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.

Ingredients

One and a half cups of Red Lentils

Carrot

Potato

Diced Onion

Cooking Oil

Salt

Chicken

Water

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.
