My boyfriend & I first had Puy Lentils at a restaurant in Paris (L'Ambassade d'Auvergne) & thought they were fantastic. This recipe uses chicken, lentils & any leftover veges you have - we get a weekly organic box so on a Wednesday (the night before the delivery for the week) we have odd amounts of veges left that we don't want to waste. This is how this recipe came about. I used carrots, cabbage, mushrooms etc, but just use whatever you have on hand. If you don't have Puy Lentils, brown can be substituted. You can also reduce the garlic if 4 cloves sounds like a bit much!
