Cajun Curry Chicken!

A new recipe..

This recipe caught my eye in early winter issue of Better Homes and Garden Magazine and I haven't had a chance to try it so today I'm posting it for those who may want to try something with curry and fennel. I haven't made any recipes with curry and fennel but want to open my hubby and myself to lots of new and interesting meals. I'm hoping to make this in the near future but thought maybe I'd share it now with you.  Hope you enjoy!
