What a tasty, easy dish! I used 3c stock (my own turkey stock from this year's Thanksgiving - pulled from freezer- and low sodium by default), a can of diced salt free tomatoes and fresh ground black pepper, cumin, turmeric and chili flakes for spices. I started with the onion and garlic (double to 4 cloves) and spices for a few minutes, to infuse the oil and toast the spices. Then browned the chicken while finishing the the onion and garlic - no need to add then remove chicken. Then added the lentils and stirred for a couple of minutes, then the carrots, same amount of time. Then I added the liquid ingredients, a bit of salt and put on the lid and simmered all for a good 1.5 hours while doing other things. I finished it off with the lemon juice and garnished with fresh cilantro. I used one pot, no in and out of anything - a happy stew was had. Dark meat would also be tasty but I used breast. Also think it would be nice with spicy sausage or even a firm white fish, added at the end. Thanks for the idea.
