Poached Chicken with Lardons and Lentils

This is a great recipe – takes a while to cook (~45 minutes poaching) but there’s hardly any washing up which makes it a winner in my book. The recipe comes from Nigella Kitchen.

Ingredients at the ready for a one pot wonder by Nigella.

Chop up the veg and fry with the bacon lardons (I used pancetta because there was some in the fridge already), then add the lentils, place the chicken on top and add water… then cover and simmer for 45 minutes. One pot wonder!

It's @nigellalawson's poached chicken with lardons and lentils for dinner. Bonus points for minimal washing up!
