    310g (1 1/2 cups) dried split red lentils
    2 teaspoons olive oil
    1 large brown onion, finely chopped
    2 celery sticks, chopped
    1 carrot, chopped
    2 large garlic cloves, finely chopped
    800g corn-fed chicken thighs on the bone, skin removed
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
    1L (4 cups) chicken stock
    1L (4 cups) water
    2 400g cans crushed tomatoes
    Salt & ground black pepper, to taste


Place the lentils in a sieve and rinse under cold running water until the water runs clear. Set aside.

Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, carrot and garlic, and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until the vegetables soften slightly. Add the chicken, cumin and cayenne pepper. Cook, turning occasionally, for 3-5 minutes or until the chicken begins to brown.

Stir in the stock, water and tomatoes. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, covered, for 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

Use a pair of tongs to transfer the chicken to a clean board. Stir the lentils into the soup and cook, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes or until the lentils are cooked.

Remove the chicken meat from the bones. Break into small pieces and return to the soup. Cook for 1 minute or until the chicken is heated through. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
