Place chicken thighs, lentils, water and chicken stock in a large pot. Cover the pot before boiling using medium-low heat for about 20 minutes, or until the chicken thighs are cooked through. Take out chicken thighs from the pot to shred them. Return shredded chicken to pot. Add other ingredients, except salt, into the pot. Boil for about 25 minutes, or until the lentils are cooked. Pour more water if the soup has thickened too much. Season with salt according to your taste. Enjoy while it is hot.
