To make it just

Warm a frying pan, whilst warming chop the chicken into small chunks and chop the shallot and garlic finely, fry it all off together.

Boil a saucepan of water, chop the potatoes into large chunks and place in boiling water for 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes add in the lentils and stir well to avoid sticking, after cooking time drain and return to the pan.

Add the chicken, shallot and garlic into the saucepan with the potatoes.

Leave to cook on low for 2 hours to allow flavours to infuse well.
