Roast Chicken with Persimon®, Fennel and Olives
Adding Persimon®, fennel and olives to this classic roast chicken recipe gives a touch of Mediterranean flair to this delicious, home-comfort-food dish.
Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
Line a rimmed bake sheet with parchment paper. Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl. Add the paprika, salt and pepper and half of the parsley; toss to coat. Place the chicken, skin side down on the tray and bake for 20 minutes.
Place the Persimon® wedges, fennel, olives and remaining parsley in a separate bowl. Add olive oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.
At the 20 minute mark turn the chicken pieces over. Add the Persimons®, fennel and olives to the bake sheet and bake for an additional 20 – 25 minutes, turning once halfway through.
Cook until the fennel is browned and the chicken is cooked through. Serve with rice or salad.
