  1. Heat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Whisk the honey, lemon zest and juice and olive oil together with some seasoning, then pour over the chicken thighs in a baking dish or roasting tray. Scatter the broccoli in and around the chicken, coating in some of the sauce. Cook for 40-45 mins, basting occasionally, until the sauce is sticky and reduced and the chicken is golden and glazed. 
  2. Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in boiling water for 15 mins until tender. Drain, then mash well with some seasoning and the double cream. Serve alongside the sticky chicken and broccoli.
