Roasted Chicken and Fennel

This is one of the best things we've made in a while. We found the recipe on the ever useful "Kitchn" from Apartment Therapy. The original recipe calls for chicken thighs, but we used chicken breast. We just put a probe into the chicken while it baked and took it out when it came up to temperature. The Crusader also made some wonderful mock riceroni to go with it by toasting some orzo and rice in a pan with some olive oil and then cooking it like regular rice--very tasty.

The mock rice-a-roni is:

1 Tbsp olive oil, over medium heat, add 1 shallot diced and sautee for a minute or two to infuse the oil, add 1/2 cup orzo, 1/2 cup rice, toast until the orzo is golden-brown. Add 1 and 1/2 cups of water, and salt to taste. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes or until the rice is done, stirring once at 10 minutes to make sure it isn't sticking to the bottom of the pot.
