Cook the lentils:
1 Cook the lentils:

Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the lentils and cook, uncovered, 27 to 29 minutes, or until tender. Drain thoroughly and rinse under warm water for 30 seconds to 1 minute.

2 Prepare the ingredients:

While the lentils cook, wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and thinly slice the onion. Peel and roughly chop the garlic. Peel and medium dice the carrots. Roughly chop the capers. Remove and discard the stems from the collard greens; roughly chop the leaves.

Cook the chicken:
3 Cook the chicken:

While the lentils continue to cook, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and half the spice blend. In a large pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken and cook 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board.

4 Cook the vegetables:

Add the sliced onion, chopped garlic, and diced carrots to pan of reserved fond; season with salt and pepper. (If the pan seems dry, add 2 teaspoons of olive oil.) Cook, on medium-high, stirring frequently, 4 to 5 minutes, or until softened and fragrant. Add the tomato paste, remaining spice blend, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minutes, or until dark red and fragrant. Add the chopped collard greens and 2 cups of water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up any fond from the bottom of the pan, 8 to 9 minutes, or until the collard greens have wilted and the liquid has thickened.

6 Slice the chicken & serve your dish:

Slice the cooked chicken on an angle. Add the cooked lentils and half the vinegar to the pan of cooked vegetables. Stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. In a bowl, combine the chopped capers, cheese, and remaining vinegar. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper to taste. Top the finished lentils and vegetables with the sliced chicken and caper-cheese mixture. Enjoy!
