Roast Chicken Thighs with Fennel and Onion

Roast Chicken Thighs with Fennel and Onion

This dish is an absolute treat.

Roasted fennel is just so delish. Cooked correctly, it can taste really caramelly and will melt in your mouth. It’s so simple to make and can be kept for the next day too.

The orange zest used in this recipe gives the dish a good alkalizing citrus twist and you can stack on the orange segments as you cook.
