Adapted from “Slowcooking” – The Australian Women’s Weekly. A very comforting food, perfect for winter time!


Ingredients (serves 3)

  • 1/2 kg diced chicken breast
  • 70 grams dried red lentils
  • 70 grams dried brown lentils
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 200 grams canned diced tomatoes
  • 250 grams diced pumpkin
  • 140 ml coconut milk
  • 70 grams baby spinach
  • Natural yogurt to serve
  • Naan bread to serve

Method

  1. Rinse lentils. Drain.
  2. Add some olive oil to inner pot of All-in-One Cooker. Press SAUTE/SEAR HIGH TEMP. Set cooking time for 10 minutes. Press START.
  3. Add onion, garlic, ginger and spices. After a couple of minutes add the chicken. Stir.
  4. Add stock, tomatoes, pumpkin, and lentils.
  5. Close lid. Press SLOW COOKER/LOW for 7 hours. Press START.
  6. Set valve to VENT, open, add coconut milk, stir.
  7. At this point I had some problems. I wanted to slow cook in HIGH for 10 minutes, but I wasn’t able to change the set time. The minimum time allowed was 2 hours. So I set the cooking time at 2 hours and 10 minutes, pressed START and checked the time. When it arrived at 2 hours I put the valve to VENT and opened.
  8. Stir in spinaches and mix.
  9. Serve with Naan bread and natural yogurt.

  • Sounds like a good recipe.
    Did you realize that there is no amount of chicken specified in the ingredients?


    • They pointed it out to me yesterday and the amount of chicken is now appearing. Thanks!

  • Oh my! Thanks to mom72197 I’ve just noticed that in the recipe I didn’t write down the amount of chicken. And I guess I can’t change the recipe anymore.
    It’s half a kilo diced chicken breast.
    Sorry!!

  • I don’t normally cook with lentils, simply because I’m unsure of what to do with them. But, I do love this recipe and I know that lentils are good for you. So, here’s to giving it a go.
