Chicken, Lentil and Tomato Bake Chicken, Lentil and Tomato Bake

Mist a large frying pan with cooking spray.  Fry the onion over a medium heat for 3 - 4 minutes until starting to soften then add the garlic. Fry for a further minute, then add the chicken to the pan.

Cook the chicken for a few minutes until golden on all sides, then remove from the pan and set aside.  Add the lentils to the pan and set aside. Add the lentils to the pan, along with the chopped tomatoes and stock, stir well and combine.

Preheat the oven to 180and transfer the chicken to an oven proof dish and pour over the lentil and tomato mix. Cover witha  sheet of foil and bake for around 45 minutes, until the lentils are tender and the stock has been absorbed.  Season and serve with the basil and pine buts.
