Recipe by ellie_

We enjoyed this recipe very much but the original recipe came from WW I love Leftovers cookbook and half is supposed to be used for a second dish (chicken salad), but with my family who are not all weight watchers the salad was not made - they just devored the chicken and veggies. WW points plus is 6.

Delicious! I was surprised by how much I loved the fennel in this recipe. It was absolutely delicious with the carrots. The chicken is nice and tender and the sauce is very flavorful. I served this with rice and it made a complete meal. Yummy!
