"We got some lovely fennel and yellow beats at the farmer's market and I wanted to roast it up with a large Cornish hen we had. This is the result, and has been so far the best roast chicken/Cornish hen I've made. Feel free to use a chicken instead, or a larger bird, though you should probably scale the ingredients to accommodate. Oven time will be longer too. You can purchase the dried lemon or sumac powder from sadaf.com."

"We loved this chicken recipe!! I used the herbs de provence because I served buttered noodles with caraway seed (#348013) with it and didn't want the rosemary to compete with the caraway. I'm sure it will be good with the rosemary too. The fennel and beet were wonderful in this dish. I will be making this again, for sure. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT6."
