1 tbsp
olive oil
15 mL
Compliments Chicken Thighs (bone-in, skin-on)
1 tsp each
coarse salt and cracked black pepper
5 mL
small red onion, finely diced
red pepper, finely diced
1 1/2 cups
hot house tomato, finely diced
375 mL
1 can
Compliments Canned Lentils, rinsed and drained
540 mL
1/2 cup
Compliments Bold Smoky Mesquite BBQ Sauce
125 mL
1/4 cup
Compliments Crumbled Feta Cheese
60 mL
1/4 cup
chopped Compliments Cilantro
60 mL


Step 1

Heat the olive oil in a large heavy saucepan over medium heat. Season all sides of chicken thighs with the salt and pepper. Fry chicken, skin-side down, to crisp the skin to a deep golden brown, about 10 min. Turn thighs over, brown second side for 2 min. Set aside chicken pieces on a plate.

Step 2

Stir together the onion, red pepper, tomato, lentils and BBQ sauce in the saucepan. Add enough water (or chicken or veggie broth) to almost cover the mixture, approx. 1 ½ cups (375 mL).

Step 3

Nestle the chicken thighs, skin-side up, into the lentil mixture and bring to a gentle simmer, uncovered. Cook until liquid has almost evaporated and chicken reaches an internal temperature of 74°C (165°F), about 18 min.

Step 4

To serve, divide the chicken thighs onto four serving plates. Spoon the lentil mixture alongside and garnish with crumbled feta and chopped cilantro.
