I also made this last Shabbos; it’s so simple that you can’t believe it’s so good. Your house will smell fantastic.
4 chickens, cut into 1/8th’s
1 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons granulated garlic
2 teaspoons oregano
2 teaspoons basil
2 (29 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
2 onions, chopped
2 bulbs fennel, chopped
2 cups canned sliced mushrooms (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange chicken pieces in a single layer in roasting pans. Sprinkle with pepper, garlic, oregano and basil. Bake for ½ hour. Remove from oven and cover with tomatoes, onions, fennel and mushrooms (if using). Return to oven and bake for an additional 1-1/2 hours. This dish only improves with reheating.
