A simple and delicious meal. I baked seasoned chicken breasts and cut into smaller servings before lining the lentil & rice dish, warmed up some pita bread (in the basket), served cucumbers and tomatoes, and fresh fruit. Keeping with the middle eastern theme, plain yogurt would go well with the rice dish, but I didn't have any. Still yummy. Here's the recipe for the rice dish from allrecipes.comNotes:Use brown rice if you have it - just cook it with the lentils from the very beginning since brown rice takes longer to cook than white riceYou can use red lentils just as easilyDouble or Triple the Onions!!!and add 1tsp. cumin at the end - you'll love the flavor and it's more authentic that way).
