Serves 6


1 cup dry small white beans (such as small navy or white French beans)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 fennel bulbs (core removed and sliced into about ¼ inch slices
1 large red onion cut into narrow wedges or slices
2 bone-in chicken breast halves, about 1 1/2 pounds total
1 canned whole roma tomatoes
1-2 cloves garlic minced

1 tablespoon grated orange zest
