1 H
This hearty chicken and lentil recipe is a budget-friendly meal idea for busy weeknights.



  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. In a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, brown half of the drumsticks at a time in the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside on a plate.
  3. In the same Dutch oven over medium heat, soften the onion for 5 minutes or until translucent. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute. Deglaze with the wine and let reduce by half. Add the squash, tomatoes, broth, lentils and the reserved chicken. Bring to a boil. Cover and transfer to the oven. Cook for 1 hour or until the meat comes away from the bones.
  4. Sprinkle with the parsley. Serve the chicken with bread, pasta or rice, if desired.

  1. This recipe is fabulous and bursting with flavour! Followed it exactly and served it over white rice, which absorbed the liquid beautifully. Thanks again, Ricardo!
