Our family loves Indian food, so here’s hoping the slow cooker Indian Spiced Lentils will be a hit.
I modified the recipe somewhat from the crockpot365 blog.
- 2 cups dried lentils (not pre-soaked, rinsed)
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 3 cups water
- 1 cup diced onion
- 1 cup diced celery
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp coriander
- 2 tsp curry
- 1/2 tsp dried mustard
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp chopped garlic
- dash of cayenne
- 2 frozen chicken breast halves.
- Add all ingredients (except chicken) into slow cooker, mix, and add chicken breasts on top. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 7 hours.
- Close the lid. (Sometimes I forget to do this.)
That’s it! I plan on serving it over brown rice.
Update: Results are in and we have a happy family! It was delicious, healthy, easy, and a crowd pleaser. My husband had seconds and my oldest daughter said, “Oooh, great dinner, Mommy!” The recipe makes a lot. I could have easily had our neighbors over for dinner. Happily, we love leftovers. I highly recommend this recipe.
