Crock pot Chicken Breast and Lentils
« on: Nov 01, 2015, 08:07:00 PM »
Even Johnny liked it (but she left out the garlic just for him)

Clean Crock Pot Chicken and Lentil Curry
Serves 6

Ingredients:
Olive oil spray
½ onion, chopped (I used red)
1 small bell pepper, chopped (I used red)
1 large zucchini, chopped
4 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
1 cup uncooked lentil beans (I used red split lentils from Trader Joe’s)
2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes in juice (organic preferred)
3 cups chicken broth or stock (organic preferred)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon curry powder
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes (careful, these are hot!)
Fresh cilantro (for garnish)

Directions:
Spritz the inside of the Crock Pot with olive oil spray or use a crock pot bag (This step isn't necessary, but it does make cleanup easier.)

Fresh veggies, ready for the Crock Pot!

Place veggies and minced garlic in the bottom of the Crock Pot.

Add lentils.

Place uncooked chicken breasts on top of veggies and lentils.

Pour canned tomatoes—with juice—over chicken breasts.

Add chicken stock (or broth) to Crock Pot.

Sprinkle seasonings over the top.

Cover and cook on “low” for 8-10 hours or on “high” for 4-6 hours.

About half an hour prior to serving, remove lid and shred chicken using two forks or tongs.

Garnish with fresh cilantro after curry is plated.

Sounds good. I would tweak this to my tastes. But good stuff.
