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.

fantastic and easy to cook. I usually serve it with cabbage fried with onions and bacon. I get requests to cook this all the time and it never fails to please. Have also used some sweet and sour sauce with mustard seeds when I didn't have all the ingredients once and served it with extra carrots it was divine.

Just made this from the one pot cookbook - it was a huge hit with the family - Since I haven't got a sweet tooth I thought it was a little too sweet but the others disagree. The parsnips were surprisingly yummy and my 8 yr old who normally detests them, wolfed them down

I swapped the parsnips for carrots, and served it with mashed potato. It was my night for cooking (we try and give mum a few days off) and the family absolutely loved it :)

Simple to make, and good flavours. Would work well with mustard mash...

Parsnips, were just a mushy mess!! Loved the tenderness of the chicken, but everything tasted so sweet even with adjustments as suggested by others - will probably try again & swap parsnips for another veg

I made this without the parsnips and served with roast vegetables.

Delicious! Made this for my husband and the in-laws and it was amazing! I served this with Purple Brocoli and brown rice. The parsnips were perfect and the sweetness was fine! Honey and mustard chicken is supposed to be sweet. will definitely make this again. I added 4 cloves of garlic with the onion and added some cornflour at the end to thicken the sauce a bit. Will definitely make this again.

Lovely recipe, only put half the mustard in as not a fan and was still fantastic. Great taste, nice and sweet. Made it for the whole family and they all loved it.

Yummy!
I used chicken breasts aswell. I also added a few carrots for colour. When it was done I served up the veg and chicken and added a dollop of creme fraiche to the pan to make a creamy sauce.

It was really nice and as many other people on the site commented it benefited from being left to bubble a bit longer, which in this house, where Bambino’s bedtime routine needs to be negotiated, is a good thing!

So easy to prepare and can just leave the casserole bubbling while doing somethings else. Also used chicken breasts (4) and it was really really good....definitely will make again

I found this recipe a few months ago and it has become a firm family favorite!! It is a fantastic recipe and works well with my healthy Weight Watchers Plan!

The only thing I change is to add some carrot! As we love our veggies :-)

Followed all the instructions, but found it thin, watery and the parsnips were still a bit hard. I didnt particularly like the flavour, which is weird as I love all the ingredients.

I did this, but used ideas from the chicken and mustard and creme fraiche recipe in this section.

I used cider and creme fraiche for the stock and I cooked other vegetables - potatoes; green beans & carrots. We really enjoyed this.
