Recipe by Barbell Bunny

My roommate made this the other day from her Cooking Light magazine, and I absolutely had to snag the recipe for myself because I loved it! She is vegetarian, so she omitted the chicken and I believe she put some already cooked lentils in the dish for extra protein. (Vegetarian option). Thanks to the spices in this dish there are beautiful flavors and this is quite filling :]
