Sally's Recipe Of The Week: Lentils With Corn And Chicken


Lentils With Corn And Chicken

Serves 4

Thanks to a free sample I discovered these Organic Madras Lentils at Costco. They are so good and has become an easy kitchen hack. You microwave them for a minute and they are ready. If you like you can use regular lentils and cook them according to package directions. If you do that you will have to adjust your seasoning.

Here is what you will need:

1 pack of Organic Madras Lentils

1 cup diced red bell pepper

1 1/2 cup diced onion

4 cloves garlic, chopped

4 tomatoes

2 or 3 ears of corn

2 TBS chopped parsley or cilantro (I used some frozen parsley I had)

1 pound ground chicken, or any ground meat you like

olive oil

salt and pepper

cayenne pepper and cumin (optional)

Mark the tomatoes with an X just through the skin, not deep cuts.

Put the tomatoes in boiling water for about a minute, you want the skin to loosen, then place them in an ice bath.

Saute the peppers and onions in 1 TBS of olive oil. (I'm using my Instant Pot, you can you a stove top pot.)

Season with salt and pepper.

Cut the kernels off the corn cob.

Add the chicken to the pot, season with salt and pepper and break it up as it cooks.

When the chicken is cooked add in the corn and garlic.

Peel and chop the tomatoes. I took out some of the seeds. Add in the tomatoes and let them cook down a bit.

Add in the cooked packet of lentils.

Taste it. I decided to add in a tsp of cayenne pepper and a TBS of Cumin. Lets Eat!
