Nothing says cosy nights in like gratin! We've thrown in some juicy shredded chicken and sweet parsnips for good measure. You'll be making a sauce from sour cream and chicken stock, flavouring it with fresh rosemary and thyme before roasting the lot in the oven. Served with lemony spring greens – winner, winner!
