Red Lentil and Chicken Chili

I was vegan for a whole year back in 2012. Yes, I was a fat vegan. One of my favorite recipes was this chili that replaces beans with red lentils. Since I now eat meat, I decided to add ground chicken. This recipe is delicious, healthy, and filling. This is a slow cooker recipe and I have only ever made this using a crock pot.
