Serves 4

Ingredients
2 tbsp olive oil
8 chicken drumsticks, skin left on
2 onions, very finely chopped

Heat the slow cooker if necessary. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan, brown the drumsticks on all sides, then transfer to a plate.

Add the onions and remaining oil to the pan, and cook for 5 minutes or so until soft. Put the lentils, tomatoes, 100ml boiling water and the stock cube in the slow cooker. Add the drumsticks to the cooker, and cook on low for 4 hours, then season.

Meanwhile, make the gremolata. Mix the lemon zest, garlic and parsley together. Sprinkle over the cooked stew and serve with a chunk of crusty bread.
