Crispy Chicken Thighs on Braised French Lentils
This week’s featured recipe was inspired by the wonderful world of French food. French cooking styles also vary from region to region. The Alps are famous for their fondues, while dishes from Provence like ratatouille are usually filled with fresh vegetables and earthy herbs.
In this dish, puy style lentils, chicken thighs and vegetables make a wholesome base for loads of amazing flavours from lemon, bay, whole grain mustard, thyme and oregano. The chicken thighs release an amazing aroma that will transform your kitchen into a French farmhouse. Pan-frying them ensures that the skins are extra crisp, just as everyone likes them. The dish is also full of nutrients from 3 of your 5-a-day, low in carbs, high in protein and guaranteed to keep you warm and satisfied on a cold and stormy night.
