Ingredients
Directions
  1. Soak the lentils in water and marinate the chicken (cut into large cubes) over night.
  2. In a large crockpot, place chopped chicken, chopped onion, celery, lentils, black beans, garlic and dry seasonings.
  3. Simmer remaining marinade from chicken, until reduced 50% and then add to crockpot along with the chicken stock.
  4. Cook on low-medium for 10 hours, until chicken can be broken up with wooden spoon.
  5. Add tomatoes and if using fresh herbs, approximately 1-2 hours before serving.
  6. Freeze leftovers for a quick dinner or divide for easy to heat lunches. The cayenne is optional.
  7. Note: have fun with the flavors and enjoy a comforting bowl on a cold day!
  8. Tip: soak the lentils with 1-2 teaspoons of baking soda overnight and be sure to rinse thoroughly to help minimize the effects of the gas with beans.
