Chicken and Lentil Stew (South Beach Diet Phase 2) created by cookin mimi

From most recent book. Haven't tried. This hearty, quick cooking stew tastes as if it had been simmered for hours. Double the recipe, it freezes beautifully.

    Easy, nutritious and delicious....what more could you ask for in a recipe...Oh, yeah, I had all the ingredients on hand and that was another plus! I made this recipe almost exactly as posted, only added a couple of small amounts of leftovers that I had. It was really a delicious soup! Thanks for sharing it with us on Food.com, Lizzie!!!

    I made this last night and both my 11-year-old daughter and I loved it! Hearty, filling, tasty. HOWEVER, I have never seen lentils in a can, so I went ahead and bought a bag of lentils, which take only 20 minutes to cook, and used 2 cups of those instead of a can. It was all very good.

    OMG, this is excellent and so flavorful and filling. I did use tomatoes w/green chiles and that game it some extra spice. DH & DD both wanted theirs over rice, but I thought it was fine just the way it was. Makes a nice easy meal for a busy night and healthy as well. This will be on my make again soon list. Made for New Kid on the Block Tag.
