  • 4 chicken drumsticks (skin on)
  • 500 g raw carrots
  • 500 g raw parsnips
  • 1 red onion
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 2 lemons
  • 4-5 sprigs rosemary
  • 500 ml chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  • Peel and chop the root vegetables into medium-sized chunks. Add to a baking tray with half the oil, salt and pepper and place in an oven at 190°C (fan) for 50 minutes.
  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper. With the rest of the oil, sear the chicken on all sides in a pan on high heat.
  • Once the chicken is seared, remove from the pan. In the same pan, add the garlic and onions. Reduce the heat to low and cook for around 5 minutes until soft.
  • Add the chicken back to the pan with the stock, rosemary and the juice from the lemon. Cook on a medium heat for another 20-25 minutes until the chicken is cooked.
  • Blend the reduced liquid (with a small amount of cornflour if needed for thickening) and serve as a gravy on the chicken and root vegetables.
