Chicken & Lentil Stew with Gremolata

I recently bought BBC GoodFood magazine and found out this delicious stew menu. At first, I am not a stew food lovers and I am more prefer to enjoy fried dishes. But however, this stew dishes really change my mindset about having stew dish for once in awhile.

2 tbsp olive oil
8 chicken drumstick, skin left on
2 onion, very finely chopped
6 tbsp red lentils
400g can chopped tomatoes
1 chicken stock cube, crumbled
French loaf, to serve

Zest 1 lemon
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
Small handful parsley finely chopped

  1. Heat half the oil in a large non stick frying pan, brown the drumstick on all sides, then transfer to a plate.
  2. Add the onion and remaining oil to the pan, and cook for 5 minutes or so until soft. Add lentils, tomatoes, 1 can of water and the chicken cube. Return the drumsticks to the pan. Bring to the boil, then turn down the hear, put on the lid and simmer for 30 minutes or until tender. Keep an eye on the stew and add little water if it is drying out. Remove the lid and cook for another 30 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened, then season.
  3. Meanwhile make the gremolata. Mix the lemon zest, garlic and parsley together. Sprinkle over the cooked stew and serve with the French loaf, or I am choosing to enjoy it with garlic bread loaf.
