Trim excess fat from chicken if necessary.

In roasting pan, toss together chicken, tarragon, oil, salt and pepper. Arrange fennel and lemon around chicken.

Roast, skin side up, in 400°F (200°C) oven, basting occasionally, until juices run clear when chicken is pierced, about 1 hour.

Transfer chicken and fennel to platter. Skim fat from pan and discard. With tongs, squeeze juice from lemon into drippings; return rinds to pan and whisk to combine. Pour over chicken.
