This was lovely. We added a few extra types of veggies and some pasta and turned it into a one pot meal. Cooked for about 45 mins in the pressure cooker, the meat was falling apart and so good.

I made this recipe exactly as written and found that no one in my family cared for it much. I got an "it's okay" from my husband who said he'd eat the leftovers when I said I never would. But, I threw them away after they sat in the fridge for a week. I found that the fennel and onions were still pretty hard and the flavor was pretty bland. Sorry

July 29, 2008: This is fabulous and easy to make!!! I prepared this in the oven. I love the earthy, unique flavor that the fennel gives this dish. I could have just eaten a whole dish of the vegetables, they were so good!! The chicken was cooked perfectly moist too! Loved this recipe, will definitely make again and again! January 28, 2009 UPDATE: I made this dish again!!! It is one of my favorite Zaar recipes!!! It is so easy and delicious!!! This time, instead of wine, I used cognac and it tasted wonderful! This is a super recipe, thanks Parsley!!!
