Little lentils are often overlooked but their small size is what makes them so useful. They are a great addition to curries and soups and can be combined with mince to make healthier burger patties. Lentils are an easy way to add extra fibre to your favourite meals.
1. Heat a dash of oil in a lidded frying pan and brown chicken pieces. Remove from pan.
