Ingredients

    2 ½ cups (625 mL) whole red lentils, dry

    7 ½ cups (1.9 L) sodium-free chicken stock

    2 Tbsp (30 mL) Cajun seasoning

    1 Tbsp (15 mL) canola oil

    20 oz (625 g) chicken breast, small dice

    2 tsp (10 mL) blackening seasoning

    2 ½ cups (625 mL) brown rice, cooked

    ¼ cup (60 mL) malt vinegar

    ¼ cup (60 mL) red wine vinegar

    4 cups (1 L) sugar snap peas, trimmed and washed

    2 cups (500 mL) red bell pepper, julienne

    2 cups (500 mL) yellow bell pepper, julienne

    2 cups (500 mL) corn kernels

    6 cups (1.5 L) iceberg lettuce, rough chop


Directions

  1. In a large pot, add lentils, stock, and Cajun seasoning. Boil until lentils are tender, roughly 15 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. While the lentils are cooking, place a sauté pan and over medium to high heat. Add oil, chicken, and blackening seasoning and cook until internal temperature reaches 160°F (70°C). Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine lentils and rice. Combine malt vinegar and red wine vinegar, and dress the lentil/rice mixture with half of the combined vinegar.
  4. In a separate large mixing bowl, add snap peas, bell pepper, corn, and lettuce and toss with remaining vinegar.
  5. To plate, add lentil/rice blend in one half of the bowl and the vegetable blend in the other. Top with cooked chicken and serve.
