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.
