  • How much lentils, how much chicken broth? - 1/29/09

    Reply from LGILKEY (1/30/09)
    I was sure I typed it in, but I guess not - 1 pound or 2 cups lentils and 7 cups chicken broth. I am making this today as it is snowy. I am sure it is in the list where they calculated the calories, so that is correct.
