We got 6 big bunches of fennel in our Maryland Pick bag this past week. I have never bought fennel before and I really did not know what I would do with it. Since we were sick this past weekend, we had a lot of chicken soup, and soup means leftover cooked chicken. We threw together a delicious fennel chicken salad and it was so good. The fennel tasted even better than celery does in it. Crunchy, fresh, and delicious.
Give it a try!
2 cooked chicken breasts cut into chunks
5 fennel bulbs, diced
1/2-3/4 cup mayo
1 T lemon juice
Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
Serve on bread, challah, cracker, lettuce, kale, whatever you have available!
