  1. To make the honey glaze, mix the honey, lemon juice, 1 tbsp oil and half the dried rosemary in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven. Parboil the carrot and potato in lightly salted boiling water for 4 minutes, then add the parsnip and cook for a further 2 minutes. Drain well.
  3. Return the parboiled vegetables to the saucepan with a lid and shake gently to lightly fluff up the vegetables. Transfer to a baking tray with the onion and drizzle with 1 tbsp oil and sprinkle on the remaining rosemary and garlic. Season well with salt and pepper and toss to coat all the vegetables in the oil. Set aside and keep warm.
  4. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan and fry the chicken for 2-5 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned. Set aside the pan to use for the gravy. Add the chicken to the baking tray with the vegetables and roast for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and pour the honey glaze over the chicken. Return to the oven and cook for another 10 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked and the vegetables are tender and crispy.
  5. Meanwhile, to make the gravy, heat the pan from the chicken. Pour in the wine and reduce down to one fourth of the initial liquid. Stir in the stock. Rub together the flour and butter with your fingers and then whisk into the gravy. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, or until the gravy thickens. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. To serve, spoon the honey glazed chicken and roasted vegetables onto a plate and pour on the gravy.
