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.
