    Sweet potato & red lentils are not free on an original day so this recipe would not be syn free without the rice

    I just made the Chicken, Sweet Potato and Lentil Curry – it was absolutely yummy! My family could not believe it was a ‘diet’ recipe! I will definitely make it again!

    Sounds yum, must try this. Does it freeze well?

    We had this last night – absolutely gorgeous. Thinking I might mix some pieces of apple through it before serving. Thanks so much :)

    I am just making it right now. I have changed the chicken to pork as it’s first of January unlucky to eat chicken. I also swapped the sweet potatoes to normal ones as I haven’t had sweet ones. Let see what happens! 😉
