Roasted Chicken with Clementines and Arak

Submitted by PFC general manager Chris Dilley
6.5 tbsp arak, ouzo, or Pernod (we make our own with fennel seed and everclear!)
4 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp freshly squeezed clementine juice
3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tbsp grain mustard (Local Folks Foods or Eden Brown work great!)
3 tbsp light brown mustard (I've used dark and it works just as well)
2 medium fennel bulbs, each trimmed and cut into 8 wedges
1 three-pound chicken, cut into 8 chunks, or 8 skin-on, bone-in thighs 
4 clementines, unpeeled cut into 1/4 inch slices
1 tbsp thyme leaves
2.5 tsp fennel seeds, lightly crushed
salt and black pepper
chopped parsley to garnish


Put the first six ingredients into a large bowl and whisk in 2.5 tsp salt and 1.5 tsp black pepper. Add the chicken, fennel wedges, clementine slices, thyme and fennel seeds. Stir well with your hands and leave to marinate in the fridge for 1-12 hours.


Preheat the oven to 475. Put the chicken, fruits and marinade into a 12x14 baking dish, chicken skin side up. Once oven is at temp, roast for 35-45 minutes, until chicken is browned and at temp (165). Arrange on a dish, pour sauce over chicken and fruits, garnish with parsley and serve with plain brown rice. Serves 4.

Satay Ayam (Chicken Satay)

submitted by PFC general manager Chris Dilley
6 tbsp. peanut oil
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 tbsp. ground coriander
2 1/2 tsp. ground turmeric
1 1/2 tsp. ground fennel
1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
3 cloves garlic, chopped
6 stalks lemongrass, chopped, plus 1 stalk, whole
3 large shallots, chopped
1 5″ piece ginger, chopped
3 1/4 lb. skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1″-wide, 1/4″-thick slices


Process 2 tbsp. oil with the sugar, coriander, turmeric, fennel, salt, garlic, chopped lemongrass, shallots, and ginger in a food processor until smooth. Combine paste and chicken in a bowl; chill 4 hours. Using a meat mallet, strike thick end of lemongrass stalk until it splits into threads resembling a brush; place shattered end in a bowl and pour in remaining oil.
Build a hot charcoal fire in a grill. Thread 2 pieces of chicken each on 30 skewers; grill, turning once, brushing with oil from lemongrass brush, until charred, 5–6 minutes. Makes 30 skewers.
