  1. Preheat BBQ to medium-high setting. For the BBQ sauce: whisk together all ingredients in a sauce pan and heat until sugar dissolves. Season to taste with salt and a generous amount of black pepper.
  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Place on grill and cook on each side for 5 minutes. Baste chicken with sauce and continue to cook until done.
  3. While chicken is cooking, prepare the blue cheese dip: cook lentils in water until tender, but not falling apart, about 4-5 minutes. Drain lentils and rinse under cold water. Shake off excess moisture and combine with remaining blue cheese dip ingredients and season with salt and black pepper to taste, set aside.
  4. When chicken is cooked, serve with lentil blue cheese dip on top, or on the side with carrot and celery sticks to dip.
