This recipe has been designed for reduced FODMAP, however onion and olive oil may be substituted for the fennel and infused oil. Sour cream should be substituted with Lactose-free cream or coconut cream for sensitive individuals.
The Thermomix® produces a quick cooking sauce and then it's over to the oven to complete cooking.
Recipe could easily be doubled to produce a large number of serves.
Thermomix® boiled rice is an ideal accompaniment to make whilst the chicken is baking in the oven.

This recipe could be used as a template for a huge range of cooking sauces. Using skin-on bone in chicken thighs (or Marylands) is recommended. Chicken thigh fillets would also work well.

A simple garnish elevates the presentation of this dish.
