Arugula Salad with French Lentils, Smoked Chicken, and Roasted Peppers


Serves 6

  • 1/2 pound French green lentils, picked over and rinsed
  • One 14 1/2-ounce can low-sodium chicken broth, or homemade, skimmed of fat
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 sprigs thyme, plus 1/2 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt, plus more for seasoning
  • 6 ounces baby arugula (about 6 cups)
  • 6 ounces smoked skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into matchsticks


The Lentils Can Be Made Up To A Day In Advance And The Salad Assembled At The Last Minute. Poached Or Grilled Chicken Breast Would Produce Equally Appetizing Results. Per Serving: 250 Calories, 9 G Fat, 15 Mg Cholesterol, 26 G Carbs, 560 Mg Sodium, 17 G P
