    This was ok. Not something that would tickle my tastebuds but we might have it down the road. Using the coffee grinder for the seeds was a must. An easy meal to prepare though.  -  31 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This resipe has been a favorite of my family's since we found it last year. Even my picky 9 year old loves it. We can hardly get him to eat meat. I like to serve this with wild rice and winter squash. Very tasty, nutritious, and flavorful combination.  -  09 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We were NOT fans of this recipe at all. The fennel seed did not work with the chicken at all and gave it a funny flavor. We were almost unable to finish our dinner.  -  04 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
