This is a hearty side dish to serve with any kind of beef, pork, fish, or roast chicken.


  • 1 pound small potatoes

  • 1 medium bulb fennel

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • ¾ cup chicken broth

  • Salt and pepper

  • Lemon wedges


  1. Cut potatoes into 1/4-inch slices and fennel into 1/4-inch wedges; reserve fronds. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high. Add fennel and cook, turning occasionally, until golden brown on both sides, 8 minutes. Add potatoes and cook until golden, about 3 minutes.
