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.

It's very sweet would be my first comment. If you like that this is perfection. I cooked it for the 90mins and did tumble off the bone, also left the skins of the thighs on. Would cook it with a plain side such as rice or quinoa to balance out a bit. It's become a bit of a staple because it's so easy to make.

Like many others I found this far too sweet. I did it in two batches, one for the grandchildren as per recipe, which went down quite well. The other batch I added more mustard to give it a bit of zap which was better. Parsnips too mushy though.

I used chicken supremes instead of thighs and as I didn't have any thyme, fresh or otherwise, I sprinkled in some dried tarragon. All cooked beautifully, including the gorgeous parsnips which our farmer friend had given us. Would cook this dish again as it is so easy to prepare and gives really delicious results. Served with new potatoes and carrots.

This had become a family favourite. We use chicken breasts instead and serve it with mashed potato for a really tasty winter treat.

The flavour of this dish really was delicious - even two teenage girls and a 7 year old loved it! I opted for bone removed and skin off breasts which worked perfectly. Only thing i would say is that you need to serve quite a few extras with it. I did just carrots and brocolli and it wasn't really enough for four (despite using two packets of chicken thighs and not being big eaters) so next time I'm going to add a lil bit of rice as well. This really is a nice Sunday dinner equivalent and far easier!!!!
