Poached Chicken with Fennel

November 5, 2018


It’s hard to go past poached chicken – it’s such a quick and simple way to cook the meat, leaving it moist and succulent. This dish also packs a lovely flavour hit from the citrus and fennel…and is Phase 2 compliant – winning!

Serves 4


For the chicken:

  • 400g chicken breast (each breast sliced into halves)
  • 1 litre of homemade chicken broth (Phase 2) or Changing Habits Chicken Broth (Phase4eva)
  • 5 x slices of ginger
  • 1 x large clove of garlic, sliced
  • 1 x small handful of thyme
  • 1 x  sliced lemon
  • Salt and pepper

For the fennel salad:

  • 2 x large fennel bulbs
  • 1 x apple
  • 1 x small handful of mint
  • 2 x limes


  1. Place the broth, ginger, garlic, thyme and lemon into a large pot at a medium-high heat and bring to a boil.
  2. Add the chicken to the broth mixture and cook for 5 minutes on each side.
  3. Remove the pot from heat and let sit for a further 10 minutes.
  4. Slice and combine the fennel and apple into thin slices in a mixing bowl, add the mint leaves and stir through the lime juice.
  5. Place the fennel and apple mix onto a plate or platter with the strained chicken on top.
  6. Add extra lime and salt and pepper to taste.
