Our beautifully rich lentils with a lovely roast chicken breast, perfect for a mid-week dinner with a glass of red wine. Classic, quick and delicious.

  1. In the same pan add finely diced onion, carrot and celery and sweat down slowly on a low heat until caramelised. Add the herbs.
  1. Add the drained green lentils, the mushroom soup, the bacon and a tsp of English mustard, bring to a low simmer and heat through for five minutes.
  1. To serve, slice the chicken breasts, top with the lentils, drizzle over some olive oil and scatter with some finely chopped parsley.
