Let yourself be seduced by your dinner! Braised Fennel Chicken is an aromatic, warming, and silky dish that is inviting and succulent. Chicken braised with cream, fennel, wine and stock until just starting to fall of the bone is why this dish begs to be made. Maybe not your everyday weeknight meal, but certainly perfect for the weekend. Enjoy a glass of wine and let the braise work its magic and fill the house with a subtle savoury aroma.
While raw fennel is crisp and bright with an anise taste, braised fennel is mild and tender with just a hint of anise. Simmered with all the good things like wine and cream it’s down right delicious! Cooking the fennel softens the anise taste and the end result is mild and rich.
I love this recipe because the chicken meat just falls off the bone and the sauce is luscious and creamy while the fennel adds a little texture. The reality is….I could eat this every night of the week. My waistline however will caution me otherwise!
