Delicious Thyme Roasted Chicken and Fennel

"Total comfort food...a simple and absolutely delicious chicken dish, and ready in just about 1 hour. This dish has so much flavor, I have made this many times over the years, it will always be a favorite in my house. You can remove the skin if desired, also you may double the recipe, and of coarse adjust the thyme to taste. I have even added in whole peeled cloves of garlic (one whole garlic bulb, seperated into cloves) in with the veggies in place of the garlic powder."

  • Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper, garlic powder (if using) and thyme.
  • Drizzle oil over chicken and veggies.
  • Roast/cook uncovered for 20 minutes.
  • Remove and baste with drippings from the pan.

  • Skim off fat from drippings.
  • Add in about 1/3 cup water to the roasting pan; bring to boil (I do this on top of the stove) and boil over medium heat, stirring constantly until brown bits are loosened from bottom of the pan.
