Our family with young kids loved this recipe. I soaked the lentils to make sure they cooked in time as I don't have that much experience with lentils. I used less oil since I cooked with bacon, but I am sure you could eliminate the bacon all together if you prefer something lower in fat (although the kids liked the bacon flavor). I used chicken breasts with bone-in and skin off along with chicken broth. Great recipe!
This is absolutely delicious and couldn't be easier to make. Love Nigella!
