    Bring a saucepan of water to the boil or boil the kettle - you will need 500ml of water for each stock cube.

  • 0.5 min

    Peel and finely chop the onion and garlic. Peel and grate the parsnip.

    In a small bowl, mix together half of the honey and balsamic vinegar. Brush the mixture in the chicken and set aside in the fridge.

    In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat and add the onion and garlic.

    Add the risotto rice and cook slightly until it becomes translucent. Add the stock* gradually and stir each time until the stock disappears.

    Continue to do this until all of the stock is used and the rice is tender but still slightly firm (20-25mins).

    Remove the sage from the pan and place on paper towel to drain.
