Tasty Tuesdays- Grilled Breast of Chicken Marsala

I thought it would be fun to post & try a new recipe each Tuesday-
Found this blog hop & thought I'd play along.
It's easier to "follow through" when it's in writing

FIRST, a thank you-
Yestrerday was a very mentailly and physically draining day for me. Thanks for all your sweet emails/comments. That was w/out a shadow of a doubt the hardest funeral I have ever attended. A mother should never have to lay her child to rest. 
I will forever have the images in my head....
images I PRAY I never witness again.
My heart breaks....
I hold my babies even tighter than before...
didn't think that was even possible-

Grilled Breast of Chicken Marsala
w/grilled carrots

{from Clean Eating}

2 tsp ground fennel seeds 
• 1 tsp sea salt 
• ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper 
• ½ tsp red pepper flakes 
• 4 6-oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts 
• 16 small carrots, peeled 
• 3½ cups marsala or low-sodium chicken broth 
• 8 pieces dried porcini mushrooms 
• 2 shallots, thinly sliced 
• 4 cloves garlic, smashed 
• Vegetable oil cooking spray 
• 4 tbsp nonfat yogurt 
• 4 sprigs fresh rosemary 

Mix fennel seeds, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes in a bowl. Sprinkle spice mixture over chicken and set aside. 
Boil carrots for about 4 minutes and remove; dry on a paper towel and set aside. 
Bring marsala to a low boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add mushrooms, shallots and garlic. Season 
with more salt and pepper. Simmer until sauce reduces, about 20 minutes. Discard garlic and set sauce aside. 
Coat grill with cooking spray and grill chicken for 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Grill 
carrots for about 5 minutes, rotating until charred. 
Return sauce to stove; bring to a simmer, remove from heat and whisk in yogurt. Divide carrots among 4 plates 
and top each with chicken, sauce and a sprig of rosemary
