  1. Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add fennel wedges. Cook 5 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add fennel wedges and sugar, and sauté 3 minutes.
  3. Add chicken broth, orange rind, orange juice, vinegar, salt, and black pepper. Reduce heat, and simmer for 25 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates. Sprinkle with the fennel fronds.
  4. Note: Leave enough of the root end intact so the fennel wedges hold together.
