  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Place the fennel in a large, shallow baking dish and pour in the chicken broth. Cover the dish with foil and bake until the fennel is very tender, about 2 hours.
  2. Preheat the broiler. Drain the liquid off of the fennel and place in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until reduced to a syrup consistency, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the olive oil. Season the fennel with pepper and brush with the broth mixture. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and broil until browned, about 2 minutes. Divide among 4 plates and serve.
