Spring Chicken and Vegetables

If you haven’t guessed yet, I am not a fan of chicken in general.  Usually I find chicken meat to be gamey, dry, and tough no matter how I cook it.  I have found a decent chicken supplier – they are on the small side, but the flavor is great.  Here’s what I did with my chicken tonight – and it was devoured!  The spice rub makes the chicken skin crispy and tasty – do not discard it or your chicken will taste bland.

1 chicken, cut into pieces

1 t ground fennel

1/2 t ground coriander

1/4 t ground cumin

salt, pepper

  • combine spices and rub into chicken pieces with olive oil

2 carrots

2 parsnips

1 – 2 bulbs fennel

1 onion

2 heads green garlic

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Wash and chop the veggies into bite sized chunks
  • Add to baking pan and toss with chicken pieces
  • Bake until chicken is cooked through and veggies are tender
