To warm up on a weekday dinner, try this lovely casserole. It’s ideal for a family supper or with some friends.
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.
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.
Recommended wine: The Welmoed Sauvignon Blanc will pair excellent with this dish.
