Our answer

Nigella's Chicken Traybake With Bitter Orange And Fennel is an easy one-pan dish that takes advantage of seasonal ingredients available during late winter and early spring, but is also good at any time of the year. The chicken and fennel are marinated in a mixture of Seville orange juice (or a mixture of orange and lime juice) and then roasted in the oven. This yields a delicious sauce to serve with the dish.

Good, crusty bread is a perfect accompaniment to mop up all of the juices and effort-free. For a quick and easy side try the couscous with pine nuts and dill from the Moroccan Vegetable Pot And Couscous With Pine Nuts And Dill. This would be a perfect side dish as dill pairs well with orange, fennel and chicken and the couscous will soak up the sauce. If you want something more indulgent then you could try the Tuscan Fries as the garlic and rosemary will also complement the flavours of the chicken and fennel.
