Lentils with Kale and Chicken

Here's a new recipe for your slow carb cookbook that was passed to me for slow carb lentils with kale and chicken that is perfect for a slow carb diet. It only has a few ingredients, but it still makes for a delicious and satisfying slow carb meal.
It's a quick meal to prepare, made up with only slow carb ingredients, that you can make very easily when you get home from work and don't feel like cooking something elaborate and fancy. Please try it and let me know what you think!

  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked ahead
  • 1 can lentils
  • 1-2 bunches of kale, shredded
  • 1 small yellow onion
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Cook the chicken breast first or ahead of time, however you like. Simply, cook it in olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Now for the rest of the meal, heat the olive oil on medium heat in a frying pan.
  3. Dice the onion and add it to the heated frying pan. Season with the thyme, salt, and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes until the onions are soft.
  4. Add the kale and cook until it is limp and withered, about 5 more minutes.
  5. Remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl.
  6. Add another tablespoon of olive oil to the pan, warm it to medium heat, and add the can of rinsed lentils.
  7. Season with salt and pepper, and heat it briefly (only need minute or two).
  8. Remove from the heat, and mix with the onions and kale.
  9. Serve in a bowl or plate, topped with the shredded cooked chicken.
Options and Recommendations:
Try serving this with a lemon wedge on the side, which you can squeeze over the top. It adds a wonderful flavor to the kale, and makes a nice presentation!
