Lentils With Chicken (WW)

Recipe by ellie_

I really liked this dish - good and filling. It is 8 points plus/serving. Recipe source: WW magazine (not sure which issue). I used red lentils as that is what I had, but I am pretty sure brown lentils will hold up better in this recipe.

Lovely change up for flavors. I really enjoyed the fennel seed. Only needed two servings tonight so cut this back and and the reduction came out just fine. It makes a hearty dish that is completed with a small green salad. The lentils and chicken compliment each other very well and would certainly make this again.
