Remove from the pan and place in a warm place to rest. Place the new potatoes, carrots and celeriac in to the stock, and cook until just ready, then add the purple sprouting broccoli for just a couple of minutes and finish the broth with the herbs.

To serve slice the chicken into deep serving dishes and spoon the broth and vegetables over and around.
