    4. Add water and stock to the pan along with the seared chicken, red lentils, oregano and cannellini beans and bring to the boil. Cover and cook in oven for an hour.

    5. Remove from oven, stir in pesto and season with salt and pepper to taste.

    6. Serve with al dente pasta or your favourite roast vegetables and some steamed seasonal vegetables.
