Roast Chicken Dal

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/roast_chicken_dal.html

From EatingWell:  February/March 2005, The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

A dal is traditionally a lentil side, often the accompaniment for curry. Here, combined with roast chicken (or rotisserie chicken), it moves from the side of the plate to its center for a quick lunch or an easy weeknight dinner.

4 servings, about 1 1/2 cups each | Active Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a large heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened but not browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Add curry powder and cook, stirring, until combined with the onion and intensely aromatic, 20 to 30 seconds. Stir in lentils, tomatoes, chicken and salt and cook, stirring often, until heated through. Remove from the heat and stir in yogurt. Serve immediately.
