Sweet and Spicy Chicken and Lentil Stew


So, I’m a little behind on blogging. And the problem with being a little behind on blogging is that, despite being the young and sprightly age of just-barely-27, I am incredibly forgetful. As a result, I don’t really remember what went into a dish I made. I promise I will try to be better–both with staying on top of blogging and writing things down–but I think the recipe below is at least 90% accurate. Maybe even 100%.

I saw this recipe for chicken in a sweet and spicy lentil sauce over on Ben’s blog, What’s Cooking? I immediately starred it because a) I love lentils, b) I love spicy, and c) I have been trying to incorporate more fruit into my savory dishes and this dish has pineapple.

However, because I am a self-proclaimed lover of both the chicken thigh and the one pot dinner, I adapted this recipe so that everything cooked together in my lovely 3 qt. saute pan with lid. The result was a comforting, delicious, and easy dinner. It had just the right amount of kick from the chipotle, just the right amount of sweet from the pineapple. Thanks for the inspiration, Ben!
