"This great tasting roasted chicken recipe is one we enjoy quite often. It makes for a great Sunday dinner. I like to drizzle a bit of the juices left in the casserole dish over my chicken. The light tart flavours are just perfect!"

Step 1


Step 2

Toss the fennel, onion, garlic, olive oil and wine together in a 8” x 8” casserole dish.

Step 3

Cut the lime in half and squeeze the juice over the veggies; toss both squeezed lime pieces with the fennel mixture.

Step 4

Season the fennel mixture with celery salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.

Step 5

Place the rosemary sprigs on top of the veggies.

Step 6

Season both sides of the chicken with celery salt, garlic powder and pepper to taste and sprinkle with fennel weed. (I am quite generous with the seasonings here)

Step 7

Place the chicken pieces on top of the veggies and put the casserole dish in a preheated 375 degree Fahrenheit oven and roast for about 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and a half, until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through and the fennel is translucent and soft. This will depend on how thick the chicken pieces are.
