Simply the best recipe for winter (and it's gluten free)

This recipe is very difficult to screw up and my current favourite.

Chicken thighs, red lentils, onion, garlic, rosemary, oil for frying, parsley if you want - serves 4

Choose a cooking pot that can go on the hob and into the oven.  On the hob, fry up a chopped onion with garlic, rosemary and seasoning.  Add 200g red lentils and 500ml of stock.  Season 8 chicken thighs and place skin side up so the skin is above the liquid and will go crispy.  Bring to a simmer and put in the oven at 180c for an hour.

Add some chopped parsley if you want.

The full recipe is in Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's new book called Light and Easy which is gluten and dairy free.
I can recommend the following from that book:

Fish and Tomato curry
Trout Chermoulah
Seedy bars with chilli and rosemary (I'm still getting used to a savoury flapjack)
Buckwheat granola
Fish Rizo with broadbeans
Chocolate bean cake (made with kidney or butter beans)

Sounds lovely - are the lentils canned or dried ?

Dried red lentils - well rinsed.
