Ingredients

  • 3 tsp. olive oil, divided
  • 8 oz. boneless skinless chicken breast, diced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. coriander seed
  • ⅛ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • 1 (14 oz.) can low-sodium chicken broth
  • ½ cup French lentils
  • 6 oz. baby spinach
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill

Directions

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring once or twice until no longer pink in the middle (2 minutes). Transfer chicken to a plate.
  2. Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil to the pan and heat over medium-low heat. Add carrot, garlic, coriander, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant (1 minute).
  3. Stir in broth and lentils, increase heat to medium-high to bring to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the lentils are tender (20-30 minutes).
  4. Add the cooked chicken, spinach, and juice and return to a simmer. Cook until heated through (1-2 minutes). Stir in dill to serve.
