Ingredients

  • 1 lb red potatoes

  • In a bowl, mix together the fennel, onions, garlic, chicken, oil, rosemary, fennel seeds, salt, and pepper and toss to mix; set aside. Lift out the chicken and set aside.
  • Arrange potatoes evenly on the prepared baking sheet. Arrange chicken on top of the potato mixture.
