1. Combine chicken pieces with fennel, peppercorns, salt, garlic, chilli flakes, and half the olive oil then massage into the chicken pieces.

2. Refrigerate overnight to allow the flavours to infuse.

3. Preheat oven to 220C. Place chicken pieces skin-side up in a baking dish. Scatter over rosemary, tomatoes and wine.

4. Roast for 50 to 60 minutes or until the chicken is golden and cooked through.

5. After 25 minutes of the cooking time has passed, toss radish pieces in remaining olive oil and nestle amongst chicken.

6. When chicken is cooked, remove from the oven, drizzle with vinegar and allow to rest for 5 minutes.

7. Serve in the roasting dish with pan juices spooned over.
