  • There are two ways to make this recipe; oven or stove top.

Stove top:

  • Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces.
  • If chicken is raw, heat the butter/coconut oil in large skillet or wok until melted and cook chicken on medium/high heat until cooked through. (If chicken is pre-cooked, cook the vegetables first then add chicken)
  • While cooking, cut the apples and onion into bite sized pieces and thinly slice the fennel bulb into thin slivers.
  • Add all to skillet or wok, add spices, and continue sautéing until all are cooked through and fragrant. This will take approximately 10-12 minutes.
  • Add chicken if using pre-cooked chicken and enjoy!


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Grease a large baking sheet with butter/coconut oil.
  • Cut the chicken into bite size pieces and place on baking sheet.
  • Cut onions and apples into bite sized pieces and sprinkle on top of chicken.
  • Thinly slice the fennel bulb and sprinkle on top of onion/apple mix.
  • Sprinkle with spices and place in the oven.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes, flipping over halfway through, until chicken is completely cooked through.
  • Enjoy!


Wrap this one in flatbread for hearty, filling breakfast.
