Great recipe.....added two cloves of garlic and 1/4 tspn ground cayenne pepper to punch it up. Also, used 1/2 smoked paprica and 1/2 paprica. Fennel (anise in our market) was deliciously crunchy. Kudos!!
Oops - I thought I rated this after I first cooked it - it's really good! I did add some garlic and had more fennel than called for, otherwise kept everything about the same. Great mix of flavours in here! I am planning to try making a vegetarian version with chick-peas because I think that would be yummy too (and I'm trying to eat meat only very rarely nowadays.) Thanks for sharing!
I bought some fennel with no idea what I would make with it. I googled "chicken and fennel" and found this delicious recipe...it is so tasty! The only thing I did differently was thinly slice the chicken and toss it in the spices before sautéing. I didn't have any couscous, but it was delicious over rice. My husband also loved it. 7 Weight Watchers points plus is correct.
I love the spice combination on the chicken! I've never cooked with fennel before, but I bought one and had to find something to do with it and this recipe sounded good. It was very good as written. I think next time I will try adding some red bell pepper for a little color and so the fennel is not quite so dominate. If you are already a fennel lover, you shouldn't change a thing in this recipe. It really does have wonderful flavor.
Great mix of flavors, I used 2lbs of chicken an increased spice mixure and the rest of the other Ingredients to match. We had for the main course for the 2 of use, next time I will add some head to it unless we are having a real spicy side dish or company. Great basic recipe to mold to your own taste, or excellent as is.
I made this last night and everyone really enjoyed it! This was the family's first time trying fennel. We liked it! I did add the garlic and red pepper flakes as other reviewers suggested. I will be making this again soon. Thank you!
We really enjoyed this dish, and it was even better the next day.i threw in some golden raisins which gave it a hint of sweetness.very yummy!
Very tasty! I too added garlic and used 1/2 tsp cayenne and 1/2 tsp smoked paprika. I used chicken thighs and added yams for color and to thicken the sauce without using cornstarch. Cooked quinoa in stock instead of cous cous. I was out of oranges so I used lemon juice and honey. Still delicious!
Wonderful flavors. I did only 3 chicken breasts but made the entire sauce. The chicken was so tender and had great flavors with the spices on them. We will have this many times.
A simple yet tasty preparation! I tweaked the recipe a lil bit by adding more coriander and cumin powder, more juice and broth and some crushed fennel seeds to suit our taste. It turned out really well. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
