Courgette, lentil & chicken ‘cake’


I got leftover chicken, a courgette and a tomato out for lunch, then Chops declared he wanted cake for lunch! Ok, son, cake it is.

Here’s my chicken, courgette and lentil cake!


200g butter
100g Puy lentils, cooked
Leftover cooked chicken (probably about a fillet’s worth)
1 courgette
200g self-raising flour
50g brown sugar (will replace with rapadura when it arrives)
2 eggs


1. Blitz chicken, courgette and egg in blender to a paste
2. Cook lentils in water, drain, then add butter and sugar, let it melt into the lentils a bit then whizz with a hand blender
3. Mix the flour and chicken paste, then add to the lentil mix.
4. Spoon into a 1lb loaf tin
5. Cook in preheated oven (180c) for about 20 minutes.

This was devoured! Would be nice with more spices added too, or perhaps a banana in place of one of the eggs.
