      Oh, my.....this is one of the best recipes I have ever tried! I promise, I don't say that on every review. This one truly stands out. I had to fight off my 2-year old for the lentils. I did make a few minor changes, none of which I believe were significant. First, I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I found that my fresh ginger had gone bad, so I had to quickly sub some ground ginger. And, I did cut way back on the oil....probably reduced it by more than half. This recipe is so amazing that when no one was around, I licked my plate clean.
