  1. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, add the chorizo sausage, red onion, garlic and celery and cook for about 5 minutes until the onion is beginning to soften.
  2. Add the chicken pieces and red pepper to the pan and cook for about 4 minutes until the chicken is coloured all over.
  3. Stir in the lentils, wine and stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover and cook gently for about 30 minutes until the lentils are tender, stirring occasionally. Season to taste and serve sprinkled with chopped parsley.
Recipe Notes

Cook's tip: French green lentils are tiny, grey-green lentils. They have a distinctive flavour and hold their shape and colour when cooked. But if they are not available, you can use any other green or brown lentils.
