Chicken and Lentils over Rice

3 pot/pan cooking:

Skillet/Pan #1
1 onion, diced
2 carrots, diced
2 cloves of garlic
1 TB olive oil
*also added one chicken broth packet from TJ's while sauteing to give more flavor

Once the veggies are soft, add:
1 cup of lentils
2 cups of water
1-8oz. can of tomato sauce
1/2 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. rosemary
1 extra large chicken bullion cube
1 TB. chipotle in adobo
*add more water if it becomes dry

Pan #2
2 chicken breasts, cubed
1-2 tsp. olive oil
Saute until outside is cooked, but not cooked through
Add this to Pot#1

Pot #3
Cook brown basmati rice with chicken bullion cube.

Serve mixture over rice.

Verdict: Loved this recipe! Honestly, it was a great comfort food recipe. I might add one more can of tomato sauce to it, and leave out the chicken completely. It would be a really good vegetarian recipe.
