directions

Step 1

Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Brown the chicken, working in batches and adding more oil as needed, 3 to 5 minutes per batch; set aside.

Step 2

Add the celery and onion and cook until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle over the flour and stir, cooking a minute or so. Pour in the stock, season with salt and pepper and add the parsnips, carrots, turnip and rutabaga. Add the chicken back, bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook until the vegetables are tender and the chicken is cooked through, about 45 minutes.

Step 3

Stir in the heavy cream and parsley. Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve garnished with parsley leaves.
