Preparing Your Chicken

Place your fingers under the chicken skin above the breast to create a pocket. Place your mixed seasoning in pocket and into the inside of chicken. Place Fennel slices inside of chicken.
Place lemon slices into pocket and inside of chicken.
Prepare Mama’s Poultry Rub
Mix paprika, lemon zest & poultry seasoning together.

Sprinkle Mama’s Poultry Rub over entire chicken. Place chicken into baking dish. Sprinkle black pepper over chicken and place left over fennel all around chicken. Pour 2 cups of chicken broth into baking dish. 
Cover with aluminum foil and place into oven. Bake in the oven for 1 hour  then remove foil and continue to bake chicken for 1/2 hour.
Note: (20 minutes per pound. The chicken will be done at 160 degrees on a meat thermometer)

Remove chicken from the oven. Place whole chicken into serving dish.  (do not cut chicken until serving time)
Note: It is important to let your chicken rest for 15 minutes after removing from the oven. 
This will allow the juices to remain in the chicken. If you cut into it to soon you will lose all of the yummy flavor 
that you worked so hard to achieve…

Creamy Fennel Sauce
Remove ½ of the fennel and most of the liquid from the baking dish. 
Place into a blender. Blend into a creamy sauce (about 2 minutes).
Serve on top of chicken with Lemon slices.
