Method

  1. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan or shallow casserole with a lid. Brown the chicken until golden, then set aside. Heat the remaining oil, then cook the onions for 5 mins until softened.
  2. Nestle the thighs back amongst the onions and add the parnips. Mix the stock with the mustard and honey, then pour in. Scatter over the thyme, then bring to a simmer. Cover, then cook for 30 mins (or longer, see tip) until the chicken is tender, then season. Serve with steamed greens.

Loved this dish, but you need to carefull what you serve it with. Because of the sweetness my other half found it's best not served with sweetcorn.

I have made this recipe several times now as it is a firm favourite with both my husband and son (and me). I have found if I am doing the butter nut squash and sweet potato mash that the parsnips are to much. So like others I have added carrots and other veg instead

I too found it too sweet and again the parsnips went mushy. Won't do again. Chicken was very tender though.

I didn't find the sweetness too overpowering. Just right, in fact. The one problem I had with this dish was that, by the end of the cooking time, the parsnips had almost disintegrated. I would perhaps add them a little later next time so they hold their shape better. Other than that it was delicious...and very popular with the kids (even the 18 month-old fuss-pot!

A store cupboard & family favourite - really tasty. Like a few of the other readers I use only 1 tbsp of honey - but I guess that's a taste thing.

Absolutely gorgeous!! I made it with chicken legs instead if thighs to reduce the fat content, and it was really tasty, but next time I will add he parsnips towards the end, as they did become slightly soggy.

A stunner! If parsnips are hard to find also use baby carrots or sliced carrots which works very well with the flavours
