This weeks organic veggie box from Riverford contained 2 large fennel bulbs.
I love eating raw fennel in my salad, but I’m also quite keen for the kids to eat it due it’s great health benefits, and there’s no way in hell they would eat it raw, but I found a fantastic recipe HERE.
Fennel contains great phytonutrients with anti-inflammatory and anti cancerous properties, and it’s a very good source of quercitin and Vitamin C, both which are excellent for fighting the signs of aging
This is what you need:
1 Fennel Bulb
2 Large Chicken Breasts
Fresh herb I used Thyme
Coconut Oil or Butter
Salt & Pepper
Pre heat oven at 200
Grease a large baking tray with coconut oil or butter.
Chop the chicken and place on tray. Chop apples and onion and put on top of chicken.
Slice the Fennel thinly and lay on top.
Add garlic, herbs, salt & pepper. and an extra dollop of coconut oil or butter on top.
Bake for about 30-35 minutes.
How easy is that!
Thank’s to this recipe my kids now eat fennel, Yay!
