    Chef #914943's Note:

    This recipe is from Cooking Light and is one of my favorite chicken dishes. Yellow lentils (dal) are available where ever Indian foods are sold. Yellow split peas can be substituted. My experience has been that either one takes longer than 25minutes to reach tenderness, so I cook them ahead of time in a crock pot. Red lentils cook much quicker and can also be substituted. Serve over rice or Chinese egg noodles.

      Great dish, very flavorful. Funnily my moong dal were mush after 25 minutes, although I didn't even soak them, so I had kind of very thick gravy, but that was extremely tasty :D Thanks for sharing! Made for Healthy Choices ABC.

      This was a wonderful dish! Light, filling and a wonderful blend of spices. I agree that the lentils need to be cooked for longer than 25 mins. Great recipe.
