How to make chicken with fennel

I used this wild fennel I picked (or foraged as the chefs would say) near my parents but normal fennel will do just as well.

Serves 2. Start by chopping one onion, two sticks of celery and about 1/2 bulb fennel really finely and sauté on a low heat. If your fennel has the feathery parts like mine hold these back for now.

Once the vegetables are soft and golden add the zest of half a lemon and any of the feathery parts of the fennel.

Add a little salt and black pepper to taste along with the juice of half a lemon

Add a small grating of Parmesan (you can leave this out to reduce the fat further if you prefer but this is a small amount between two people)

Add two cooked chicken breasts and turn them to coat them in the juices

Serve with a little more Parmesan if desired and plenty of veg and salad
