    We really liked this recipe, thought the cinnamon was a great accent, I did double most of the spice amounts as we like things loaded with flavour. thanks for the recipe! May need to thin it down a bit to reheat. Very filling. - 1/20/09

    Now that it's warmer out, we like to grill up a bunch chicken breasts on a Sunday afternoon, cool and chop them, and freeze them for anything we want throughout the week. I made this recipe and added the already grilled chicken just before serving. YUM! - 4/14/14

    DELICIOUS!!!! this was my first experience cooking with lentils and I am not disappointed! I also doubled the seasoning. The chicken was tender and delicious and I will definitely make this recipe again! - 2/16/12

    Delicious! I really enjoyed this, and I like that it's so simple. I added about a half cup of raisins during the last half hour of cooking to gave it a little something extra. It adds some sugar, but some fibre too, so it's still pretty healthy. - 2/3/11

    I Loved this! Using by some of the tips below I doubled the spices and I added an onion because I always add an onion. It was very tasty! - 3/14/14
