This was extremely tasty! I've never made lentils before, but I'm now a convert. I changed the recipe slightly: soaked 1/2 cup dried brown lentils for about 2 hours before cooking; used chicken breast diced up into large pieces instead of bone-in chicken pieces, and seasoned with salt and pepper when cooking them. kept all other ingredients in the same amounts, so it made the final result a little more liquidy. I subbed fresh chopped tomatoes for the tomato sauce. I was going for a more middle-eastern taste, so I subbed 1 tsp cumin and 1/2 tsp baharat spice blend (google it!) for the rosemary and basil. stirred through lemon juice and plain yoghurt at the end, served over basmati rice and it was fab! If I had any fresh mint, I would've added that too. great recipe for lentil virgins :)
