Feeling Ill ChickenCourse: Lunch, dinnerCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy
I know you all know I love chicken. It is my comfort food. I prefer it roasted and juicy. I am not a fried chicken fan. I went to college in the South and ate so much of it as it was a novelty for me. I do like grilled chicken but really just love a roasted chicken. This recipe you can play with. Follow with what makes you happy and you feel like. I cam up with this as I was not feeling great and had been sick the night before so my tummy needed food but light food.
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
4 bone in, skin on chicken breasts or if large just 2-3 and cut in half
4 large shallots, skins removed and sliced thick
2 fennel bulbs, tops removed and each bulb cut in half then each half quartered
Turkey seasoning, Penzey’s Spices
Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
1/4-1/3 cup white wine or chicken broth
- Preheat oven to Roast 400 if you have that on your oven if not, bake at 425 works. Place heavy duty foil over a rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with 2 Tablespoons olive oil.
- Place the chicken breasts or chicken half breasts on prepared pan, roll both sides in oil, then sprinkle Turkey Seasonings all over the chicken.
- Place the shallots and fennel all around the chicken and season with salt and pepper.
- Place in oven and roast about 45 minutes then pour the wine over the chicken and allow to cook about 10 minutes more. If you want to crisp up the skin, you can turn your broiler on and broil the chicken for 5 minutes.
- Remove from oven, allow to rest for 5 minutes. Serve with the roasted shallots and fennel and couscous.
