Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut each breast in half horizontally . You will have two thinnner slices of chicken breast that will cook much more quickly than a whole thick breast piece.
  2. Cook the chicken on an oiled grill plate, until browned both sides and cooked through. Cover to keep warm and set aside.
  3. Heat the olice oli in a medium saucepan. Cook the chopped onion, bacon and garlic. Cook and stir until the onion is browned and soft.
  4. Add the wine to the onion/bacon mix.
  5. When the wine is almost all evaporated, add the chicken stock and the drained and rinsed lentils. Remove from the heat when the lentils are hot and the stock has reduced by half.
  6. Add the quartered tomatoes and chopped parsley. Stir to combine.
  7. Serve the chicken with the lentil salad and sprinle over some additional parsley leaves as garnish.
