Green Lentil Stuffed Chicken Recipe Recipe

Little toddler Aria is truly my greatest joy. She has inspired me in all aspects of my life and I take great pride in the efforts I put into helping care for and educate her. We cook almost daily together or if not, I at least get her to watch and participate in the preparation of the dinner. She's innately curious about everything around her and wants to better understand, feel, touch everything. Today, Aria helped me prepare the green lentil filling I used to stuff chicken thighs.

The lentil filling was flavored with shallots, garlic, thyme and day-old brioche. Aria cracked an egg on top so the mixture had a binder and she absolutely loved mixing and getting her hands dirty. This recipe is a healthy approach because it's packed with fiber, iron and protein. I stuffed it into boned chicken thighs then roasted the chicken until the skin was crisp and golden. The best part was watching Aria enjoying the result that came from her hard work.

Growing up in France, I never celebrated Halloween as a child. The closest events I remember were during Mardis Gras, which are Carnival celebrations after the Epiphany or King's Day. So if you notice little Aria's Halloween costume and thought you'd be scared, I miserably failed that mission. My goal was to make her as cute as possible and let her enjoy the festivities. For this, we've gone through several costumes, which she will use for the events she'll attend in the coming days.

Today, we went to the one at our local library. I had just finished preparing dinner and snapped a photo of the quick and easy dish to share with you. For this vegetarian meal, I used shallots, garlic, French Puy green lentils, thyme, parsley and day-old baguette bread.

As a general rule, I try to give Aria meat or fish at least 3 to 4 times a week and we follow the rest of the family's vegetarian diet the other days.Aria Halloween Costume
