8 chicken thighs, skin on, bone in

2 tbsp sunflower oil

2 celery stalks, thinly sliced

600g/1lb 5oz large waxy potatoes, peeled, cut into chunks

3 carrots, peeled, cut into chunks

2 parsnips, peeled, cut into chunks

3 tbsp gluten free plain flour

200ml/7fl oz hot low FODMAP chicken stock

500ml/18fl oz dry white wine

1 tbsp wholegrain mustard

salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the dumplings

200g/7oz gluten free self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting

100g/3½oz suet, shredded

3 tbsp finely chopped fresh sage

To serve

200g baby carrots

200g green beans


Season the chicken thighs all over with a little salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large, heavy-based, non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the chicken thighs skin-side down and fry for 6-8 minutes, or until deep golden-brown. Turn the chicken over and fry for 2-3 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside.

Put the vegetables in the slow-cooker. Sprinkle over the gluten free flour and stir to coat. Add the chicken and pour over the stock and wine. Stir in the mustard. Cover and cook on high for 4½ hours.

When the casserole has been cooking for about 4 hours, make the dumplings. Mix together the gluten free flour, suet and sage in a large mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

Make a well and gradually pour in 125ml/4fl oz cold water in a thin stream, slowly bringing the dry ingredients into the pool of water and stirring using a wooden spoon until the mixture comes together as a soft, squidgy dough. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and divide it into 12 pieces. Roll the pieces into balls.

Remove the lid from the slow-cooker and skim off any fat that has risen to the surface. Arrange the dumplings on top of the casserole and cover. Cook for 30 minutes, or until the dumplings puff up.

Spoon the casserole and dumplings onto plates and serve with steamed carrots and green beans.
