Today I have a simple recipe for you, and a great way to jazz up those weeknight chicken breasts. Ovi and I end up eating a lot of chicken. It’s cheap, healthy, full of lean protein and really quick. Chicken breasts are perfect for weeknights, which means of course that they can get pretty monotonous. No more monotony, friends of the internet. Lemons and fennel are here to save the day. This lemon fennel relish can be made up to 2 whole weeks in advance and used to brighten up your meals for as long as it lasts.
When I made a big batch of caramelized onions and fennel this week, I knew good things would follow. Poached eggs over crispy polenta is a favorite weeknight meal of mine. It’s comforting, healthy, and easy to prepare. When you add in a kale salad, some spring herbs and caramelized fennel, you have something special.
Today, I have a super simple recipe to share with you. Caramelized onions and fennel is a fennel and onion lover’s dream come true. Full of deep, rich flavors from a long and slow caramelization, this simple combo has a rich and complex flavor profile. I lazily stirred this to soft perfection on a Sunday morning. I plan to spruce up my simple meals with it all week long. My brain can’t even process how delicious this is going to be on toast with cream cheese in the morning. A batch of caramelized onions and fennel in your fridge is like an ace up your sleeve. Suddenly, your poached egg and polenta looks and tastes mighty impressive when topped with this flavorful mixture. Fancy up your usual chicken breast, pamper your pork chop.
