3) Take off the chicken and allow it to cool enough to handle and then debone it.
4) Make the chunks of meat into smaller pieces and set aside.
5) Strain and save the chicken stock.
6) Into a large stockpot over medium heat, pour oil and sauté onion and garlic in it for 2 minutes.
7) Mix in curry powder, until the onion and garlic are well coated and the curry powder is warmed.
8) Stir in lentils, bay leaf and reserved chicken stock and allow the mixture to come to a boil.
9) Lower the heat and simmer the mixture for 30 minutes.
