Health Rating


2 tsp All-purpose white flour
200 ml Chicken broth (stock)
2 thigh(s) Chicken thighs, bone-in, skinless
1 clove(s) Garlic (thinly sliced)
0 gm Green lentils, raw
2 slice Peameal bacon (trimmed, chopped)
3 small mushroom(s) Portobello mushroom (halved)
1/2 tsp, ground Thyme, dried
2 tsp Tomato puree, canned
1 tsp Vegetable oil
150 ml White wine
1 medium Yellow onion (thinly sliced)


Heat the oil in a non-stick wide, shallow pan, add bacon and fry briskly until lightly coloured, then lift on to a plate.

Add the chicken and fry on each side until lightly brown. Set aside with the bacon. Tip onion and garlic into the pan and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the flour and tomato purée, then stir over a low heat for 2-3 minutes. Add the wine, stock, lentils and thyme. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 5 minutes.

Stir in the mushrooms. Add the bacon and chicken, pushing them under the liquid. Cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until lentils are tender and the chicken cooked. Season with salt and pepper.
