Mustard and fennel marinated chicken

This is one of those simple but really tasty recipes. The combination of dijon mustard and fennel seeds works excellent with chicken. I often serve it with green beans and oven baked potatoes. This time, though, I wanted something lighter so I made a simple tomato salad with fresh onions, basil and a balsamic vinaigrette.

You will need

  • One chicken. Cut into pieces or butterflied.
  • Olive oil.
  • Dijon mustard
  • Salt.
  • Fennel seeds. Crushed.
  • Lemon juice.

Do like this

  1. Make marinade with olive oil, mustard, salt, fennel seeds and lemon juice.
  2. put the chicken pieces in a oven proof tray and apply the marinade. Let it marinate at least a couple of hours.
  3. Warm the oven to 175 C. Put in the chicken and let cook until it’s done and have a good colour.
  4. Take the chicken out of the oven and let it rest for a couple of minutes.
  5. Serve with chosen side dishes.
