Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Spread 1 tablespoon of the oil in the bottom of a roasting pan. Spread the fennel in a single layer and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of oil.

Salt the body cavities of the chickens and stuff 6 lemon quarters into each. Gently separate the skin from the flesh with your fingers and insert 7 or 8 rosemary sprigs under the skin of each bird. Slide the sprigs in lengthwise and distribute them evenly all around the breasts and thighs. Rub 1 tablespoon of oil on the skin of each chicken. Tie the legs together with kitchen twine. Salt the skin of the chickens just before placing them breast-sides up in the roasting pan on top of the fennel. Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a thigh (but not touching a bone) registers 165 degrees F, about 1 hour.

Transfer the chickens to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. Carve into thin slices and serve with the fennel.

    This is absolutely delicious! I sent this to my daughter before I made it, after watching the program. She said it is now her favorite "go to" recipe. I decided to prepare it tonight. The cook time was perfect as was the temperature advised. The fennel was to die for. The chicken was moist and the pan juices were used on top of the chicken. It was also a very easy recipe to put together. Allow
    1-1/2 hours for cooking.

    I am now excited about making the Brussels Sprout recipe.
