Cook the lentils: Turn on the oven to 375F to cook the chicken. In the sink, place the lentils in a strainer and rinse it well. In a pot, add the lentils and water depending on the size of your pot (2 cups, 4 cups, 6 cups), The water should cover the lentils by at least 3-4 inches. 

Bring to a boil on medium heat, then reduce heat, add salt (1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp, 3/4 tsp), and simmer covered for 20-25 minutes, until the lentils are just tender, adding more water if necessary. Be sure not to overcook them. When the lentils are done, drain them well using a strainer. Put the lentils back in the pot and set aside.
