DIRECTIONS

  • Put the oil in a deep skillet or casserole, preferably non-stick with a lid.
  • Place over medium-high heat and wait a minute or so, until the oil is hot.
  • Add the chicken, skin side down, and brown it well, turning pieces until all sides are browned. 10 to 15minutes.
  • Stir in the garlic, onions, tomatoes, turmeric, and some salt and pepper.
  • Pour in 1 quart of water, along with the herb bundle and cinnamon sticks.
  • Cover, turn heat to low, and simmer for about 20 minutes.
  • Add the lentils, cover, and simmer until they’re soft, about 25 minutes more. Discard the herbs and cinnamon sticks, season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve.
  • (You can prepare the dish up to a day ahead and refrigerate before reheating. You may need to add a little water to thin the sauce a bit.).
