Prep Time: 5 min

Total Time: 30-35 min
- 1 tablespoon coconut or avocado oil
- 1 pound of boneless & skinless chicken thighs, chopped
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup dry green lentils
- 2 cups chicken stock or purified water
- ½ jar of Guju Red Pepper Sauce

- Stir in chopped mixed greens.
- Serve and store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Notes: We used green lentils in this recipe but you can use any color you have in your pantry, just adjust the time to simmer as needed. You can easily leave the chicken out of this recipe to make this vegan!
