Bring the chicken stock and wine to the boil in a pan and add the celery and herbs. Add the chicken breasts and poach gently for around 10 minutes until cooked through and no pink juices run out when pierced with a knife. Remove from the stock and keep warm wrapped in foil.

Add the carrots to the poaching liquor and cook at a gentle simmer until tender – about 10 minutes. Remove from the liquor and set aside. Reduce the poaching liquor by half and season.

To serve, slice the chicken breasts thickly and arrange on a plate with the poached carrots. Scatter over the tomatoes, basil leaves and chopped lemon then drizzle with a tbsp or two of the reduced poaching liquor.
