The instruction how to make Spicy lentil and chicken soup

  1. Place the lentils in a sieve and rinse under cold running water until the water runs clear. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, carrot and garlic, and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until the vegetables soften slightly. Add the chicken, cumin and cayenne pepper. Cook, turning occasionally, for 3-5 minutes or until the chicken begins to brown.
  3. Stir in the stock, water and tomatoes. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, covered, for 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  4. Use a pair of tongs to transfer the chicken to a clean board. Stir the lentils into the soup and cook, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes or until the lentils are cooked.
  5. Remove the chicken meat from the bones. Break into small pieces and return to the soup. Cook for 1 minute or until the chicken is heated through. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
