      This turned out really really good. You could taste the lemon and fennel throughout the whole chicken. I added potatoes to the bottom of my roasting pan with the fennel and it was delicious. I made a pan sauce by heating up the leftover juices and adding just a touch of half and half. Thanks for another keeper!

      This is a real 10 STAR recipe!!!! So many great flavors blended together. The fennel is a really nice touch. I added some carrots to the roasting pan also, and they soaked up the flavors quite nicely. Served with rice pilaf and steamed broccoli, and of course, the cooked fennel and onion pieces.
