Roast Chicken with Pickled Fennel and Candied Walnuts
The tart fennel and sweet walnuts here make this roast chicken especially good. The orange dressing has nutty flavor, too, because it’s spiked with walnut oil. Slideshow: More Chicken Recipes
The pickled fennel can be refrigerated in its brine for 5 days.
Refrigerating the chicken uncovered overnight dries out the skin so it’s crisper once it’s roasted. Refrigerate the bird on a rack set on a rimmed baking sheet.
Pair this dish with a restrained California Chardonnay.
