Warm Chicken-Lentil Salad Recipe

1 cup French green lentils
3 cups water
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, diced
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 1/2 pounds chicken tenders (8 to 12 tenders)
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup red wine vinaigrette salad dressing (store-bought works fine)
1/4 cup minced Italian parsley

In medium sauté pan with tight-fitting lid, combine lentils, water and 1 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes, or until lentils are tender.



While lentils cook, in another sauté pan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic, onion and celery, and sauté for 5 minutes, or until vegetables are softened. Transfer vegetables to medium bowl.

In same pan used to cook vegetables, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat. Season chicken tenders with pepper and remaining salt. Place in heated pan and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
