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.

Delicious! I made it last night and as suggested I let it bubble away for 90 minutes. The meat just fell off the bone. Served it with some mash, carrots and brocoli.

Will certainly make it again.

Fantastic flavour the family loved it. As usual I went a little off piste adding carrots, a leek, using Dijon mustard and ham stock instead of veggie, so it's a moveable feast. Delicious.

A big hit with adults & kids alike. Definitely need to add
Parsnips towards end of cooking time though. Served with mustard mash and steamed greens - really delicious.

Newly retired and just started cooking properly. This was an easy and very successful dish to cook. I used chicken breast fillets. Parsnips were not too soft as expected, as we usually have them roasted. Part boiled potatoes, sweet potatoes and butternut squash pieces. My wife had seconds. Need I say more!

Used chicken breasts instead of thighs, and padded it out with carrots and peas, served with mash. A tasty recipe that fed was easy and filling.

Made this for my new housemates and everyone loved it. Full of flavour and very warming. This would be even better in the winter with mash potato :)

Tasty, but way too sweet as the parsnips are already sweet. Used boneless thighs. The pic shows a small casserole and not a shallow pan as recipe says, so cooked it in a casserole like the pic and cooked in a 350degree oven for an hour and a half. Next time I would half the amount of honey

Cooked this and everyone loved it. Not a great fan of parsnips but they ended up like a sweet compot with the onions instead of a sauce. Would definitely cook again.

Really lovely dish and makes a change not to roast parsnips and use them for something else. Husband was late in from work so in the end I did cook it for 90mins (see tip on recipe) and it really was tender chicken. Great to leave it to simmer and give it the odd stir. Served it with roast potatoes, lovely meal.

Had this instead of a traditional sunday roast and thought it was delicious! I served it with mashed sweet potato and carrot. I will certainly be making it again.

Made this for dinner tonight. It was very tasty! I added celery in with the onions and used carrots instead of parsnips as that was all I had and the family arent keen on parsnips . Only issue I had was that I added more stock than the recipe stated due to extra veg and I was worried that the chicken would go dry. Dont think I should have added more bacause there was a lot left and it didnt really thicken so had to use a slatted spoon to get out the good stuff!. Will deffo make again and follow the recipe more strictly. The children enjoyed it, even my very fussy 2 year-old.

This is a very nice and easy meal. Personally, I would use diced chicken breasts as these are less messy and easier to eat. Also, I did add some chicken bisto granules to thicken the sauce.

The whole family love this dish, though I would recommend transferring the casserole dish to the oven to avoid it going dry.
