A Different Chicken Dish

I often find when I flick through cooking magazines that a lot of dishes that look nice but have a list of exotic ingredients that I don't have in the cupboard!  When looking through a Waitrose book I came across this chicken dish which is surprisingly simple. I managed to find the same recipe on line so you can find more details of this tasty Chicken and Lentil dish through this link here.
Like most recipes I tend to either add things to it or adapt them in some way. This one I added diced carrots alongside the onion.


The first time I made it I used chicken stock which I had made myself and frozen. I didn't have any the next time so used stock made up with the little stock gels that come in small pots.


It is suggested that you use chicken thighs. I used skinned chicken breasts the first time as that was all I had. You don't however get quite the same effect. 


The skin gives a nice browned appearance.


It suggests serving it with some kind of greens. I also served a smal amount of plain boiled potatoes as the farmer in the house would object to no potato on the table. 


I think this a dish I shall be repeating in fact it has already been requested again. The recipe suggests trying with rabbit. I get given quite a lot of pheasant breasts so may try it with them. It also suggests adding bacon which also sounds good. I shall let you know.
