Number of Servings: 6


    12 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
    1 bunch broccoli cut into pieces
    2 tsp canola oil
    1 tsp each dried thyme and tarragon
    2 cups lentils
    1 tbsp soy sauce
    2 tsp mustard
    1/4 cup flour
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 cup orange juice


Dip each thigh into flour and set aside. Heat 1 tsp oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the chicken and cook until well browned, 2 minutes per side. Place on a plate. Add remaining oil and chicken to pan and brown. Place on same plate. Add garlic, thyme and tarragon to pan, and stir until garlic is golden, 30 seconds. Mix orange juice, soy sauce and mustard; add to pan and bring to a boil. Return chicken to pan. Simmer, uncovered, turning occasionally, until cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes. Add broccoli; cover and simmer until tender crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Meanwhile, heat lentils in a small pot or microwave. Divide among 6 plates; spoon chicken mixture overtop.

Serves 6.
