Chicken with New Potatoes and Fennel is my Morning Mix recipe of the week. Florida grows many different types of potatoes, from russets to red creamers. Look for them in the produce bin from January through June, with peak season months in March, April and May. Fennel is crunchy and slightly sweet with a refreshing licorice-like flavor. Every Thursday, you can find more recipes curated exclusively for WOMX Mix 105.1’s website.
