I baked the chicken in the oven instead of on the stove top at the same time I sauted the onions and fennel. I think I may have overcooked the onion and fennel mixture, because the onions were extremely pink and the fennel tasted strange. Perhaps it was just an odd side effect from the lemon juice? Which I did not measure, I just squeezed some lemon juice on top. I also didn't measure any of the seasonings. I probably should have because... I mean look at the picture. Way too much seasoning.
I also didn't really know how to cut a fennel. If you click on the recipe button and compare their picture to mine... I don't think I did it right. Oh well.
The bacon was delicious. How can you go wrong with bacon? I also loved having the capers on top of the chicken. If I made this again, I would forgo the fennel and onions and just make some chicken with bacon bits and capers on top. The cayenne pepper gave it a kick and overall it wasn't terrible. Thumbs to the side (thumbs down for me being an awful recipe follower though... I was in a hurry that night).
