Proscuitto Wrapped Chicken with Lentils

This is a super tasty, protein packed meal, that is really easy to make.

Lentils are another super nutritious food, with good quanitities of protein, complex carbohydrates and fibre helping to keep us feeling full.Β  They are great for soaking up flavours too, so by combining them with the apple cider vinegar and the flavoured oil from the sundried tomatoes, they make a really tasty accompaniment to the chicken and proscuitto.
