Moroccan Spiced Chicken and Fennel

Moroccan Spiced Chicken and Fennel created by DianaEatingRichly

I love the spice combinations of classic Moroccan cuisine. When I found this dish in one of my favorite chicken cookbooks I had to try it, as presented this is the recipe with my modifications. The flavors are just amazing and the orange juice and spices complement the fennel and red onion just so. (7 points)

    Do you cook the fennel leaves with the bulb and the onion?

    Yummy. I used pork, which I sliced before tossing in the spice mix. I also added some Sriracha to the sauce to give it a kick. Served it over quinoa. Thanks for sharing!
