1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7. Place the parsnips in a deep roasting tin and drizzle with the oil. Cook for 10-12 minutes.

3. Bake for 40 minutes, then scatter the kale over the top, baste with the juices and return to the oven for a further 5-10 minutes until the parsnips and kale are tender and the chicken is golden and cooked through with no pink meat and the juices run clear.
