From EatingWell, February/March 2005 This sounds good and I hope to make soon. Well...I made this last night for dinner. It came out pretty good. It was fairly quick and easy to make. I stopped at Costco on the way home from work and picked up one of their roasted chickens for the dish. Next time I will probably use two cans of Lentils. I like them. Enjoy!
