INGREDIENTS

  • Add garlic, apple cider and lemon juice to the pan and bring to a simmer. Arrange apple, fennel, rosemary and chicken, skin side up, in the pan.
  • Transfer the pan to the oven and roast, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and apples are tender. Sprinkle with reserved fennel fronds
  • Swirl the crème fraîche and mustard together. Serve chicken with mustard crème fraîche and crusty bread.
