The combination of fennel & citrus adds a heavenly fragrance to your roast chicken that the whole family will love.
Time: 1 hour + marinating time
Add all the marinade ingredients to a bowl and whisk to combine. Add the chicken drumsticks and toss to coat. Marinate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
Cut the fennel lengthwise into wedges. Trim any fennel fronds and place to the side. Place the fennel wedges into the bottom of a roasting dish and arrange the orange slices over the top. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt & pepper.
Nestle the chicken drumsticks around the fennel & orange and drizzle over any remaining marinade. Sprinkle over the fennel seeds and roast in the oven at 220°C for 40 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and golden.
Garnish with the reserved fennel fronds & serve immediately.
