Fresh fennel and chicken just seem to go together naturally—especially on the grill. it has a delicate, sweet flavor similar to anise but much more subtle. Look for fennel throughout the fall and spring months and use them either raw or cooked. MORE + LESS -

    Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat (page 262). Remove chicken from marinade. Brush fennel and onion with marinade. Cover and grill chicken (skin sides down), fennel and onion over medium heat 20 to 25 minutes, turning once and brushing frequently with marinade, until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut to bone (170°F). Discard any remaining marinade. Garnish chicken with lemon slices and oregano sprigs.

Expert Tips

  • For moist grilled chicken, use a pair of tongs instead of a fork to turn the pieces. A fork will pierce the flesh, letting too much of the juices run out and making the chicken drier.
