Preheat your oven to 200°C and put your kettle on to boil. Trim the carrot, then halve lengthways (no need to peel). Chop into 1cm wide batons. Pop on a baking tray. Drizzle with oil and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to coat, spread out and put to one side. Put the chicken breasts in a mixing bowl with a glug of oil, the Parisienne herbs and a pinch of salt. Rub the herbs into the meat. IMPORTANT: Remember to wash your hands and equipment after handling raw meat!
Heat a frying pan on medium-high heat. Brown the chicken for 2 mins on each side. TIP: Do this in batches if necessary. Transfer to the baking tray with the carrots and roast both on the top shelf of your oven for 20-25 mins. Turn halfway through cooking. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when it is no longer pink in the middle.
Meanwhile, halve, peel and thinly slice the red onion. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all). In a measuring jug, dissolve the stock powder in the boiling water from your kettle (see ingredients for amount). Drain and rinse the lentils in a sieve.
Wipe out the now empty frying pan and heat a drizzle of oil over medium heat. Add the onion. Stir and cook until soft, 5 mins, then add the garlic. Cook for 1 minute more and add the chicken stock. Bring to the boil, turn it down a little and simmer to reduce by half, 5 mins. Mix in the lentils and crème fraîche. Heat until piping hot, then remove from the heat.
When the chicken is cooked, take it out of your oven and leave to rest for a couple of minutes on a chopping board. Slice each breast into six even pieces and get ready to plate.
Reheat the lentil mixture if necessary and then stir in the parsley and half of the mustard. Taste and add more mustard and/ or pepper if needed. Share between your bowls. Arrange the roasted carrots on top and then finish with the Parisienne spiced chicken. Enjoy!
