I can't believe we are *almost* already in fall. I feel like if I'm trying to soak in as much as the short days we have left of Summer, but at the same time, I just can't stop thinking about all the spices and flavors and warm recipes that come with the fall months. Things like lentils and spiced chicken, and easy weeknight dinners perfect for the busy season, you know something like a big Lentil Bowl that tastes like warm wishes and tight hugs. I'm going to be honest with you guys, this is flavorful so if you like bland recipes this is not for you because this is loaded with spices. The lentils, the chicken even the carrots and the cabbage! Try this Chicken Lentil Recipe.

It's also incredibly versatile ad you can tweak it and change it depending on the leftovers you have on hand. Have a bit of rice left from last night? Throw it here! Maybe you have a bit of shredded cheese begging to be used or even some other vegetables that are about to go bad. This can take it all in.

Mainly because this is a lentil bowl after all, emphasis on the bowl part, and we all know that bowls are pretty much the best vessel to be filled with leftovers and still make it look cohesive and also partly because the lentils + the chicken are so flavorful on its own that you can add more things and still have a dish that packs a punch.

For me, the secret to making things quick and still make it homemade is using canned lentils but simmering them for a couple of minutes with things like olive oil, and onion and a sprig of rosemary or two. And the chicken? Well, I'm pretty sure the chicken could be a dinner on its own. If you are looking for healthy chicken and lentil recipes, our chicken and lentil recipe will not disappoint.

    This looks good!!! I’m a huge lentil fan! They do cook fast, but I typically make them a day or so before I plan on making a recipe with them. I didn’t realize you can buy them cooked already!
