"Moist, flavorful chicken breast with a delicious side of lentils. I suggest serving the lentils over a bed of arugula with the chicken breast on the side. Whatever you do, do not leave out the lemon juice."

I was looking for a recipe for chicken breasts with bones in (hard to fine these days), and I found this one. I was delighted with the way it turned out. It got raves from my family. The chicken was unusually tender, savory, and piquant. I didn't have seasoning salt on hand, so I improvised with salt, garlic, parsley, paprika, and pepper. Also, I cooked the lentils for twice as long (approx. 40 minutes) as the recipe called for. There were a LOT of lentils, but we'll eat them as a side dish after all the chicken is gone. Thanks for this great, delicious recipe!
Excellent flavor. My kids are not crazy about lentils. I also felt it could use a few less lentils.
The chicken was very good and the kids even at it-amazing! But there was way too many lentils for 4 servings. Next time I will cut the lentils in half. But very yummy! Also, I think it would be good with smaller pieces of chicken, like drumsticks and wings, or maybe just chunks of chicken.
Yummyyy... made this on Val. day and left out the pimintos (because I didn't have them)and everyone loved it! Even my 9yo sis who hates lentils loved it.. she actually requested that I make this again!!!
This recipe has been updated with a correction from the submitter. The recipe now calls for a package of steamed lentils, not uncooked lentils.
This was delicious and easy to make! I didn't have Lawry's so in place I used Mrs. Dash/Chicken. I will keep this recipe! Thanks for sharing!
Really enjoyed this recipe, The kids both ate it all up. I did not add the pimento since I had none. Will make again.
Some people think they need a lot of crazy thing for a good recipe. I think this one kind of goes down that road. There are too many Lentils for this dish. I feel overwhelmed by the protein and fiber. This one needs more carbs!! Maybe some potatoes or noodles... Nah Not noodles. I think that this idea is sound but I don't like using white Balsamic vinegar. It has a harsh flavor and makes me think this recipe was just thrown together instead of thought out. I do like the use of fine chopped carrots though. Most people forget how carrots can lend a light sweetness to a dish that is not overwhelming and makes for a good addition for some easy veggies. Lentils are great but this one just has too many. Also think about how this could be cooked in a casserole dish instead of a skillet. I don't own a skillet big enough to accommodate this much food.
