 Preheat oven to 450. Toast fennel seeds in skillet over medium heat. 
 Let cool, grind. Stir in pepper, coriander and salt.
 
 Season chicken with mixture. Place chicken in ovenproof skillet, and 
 roast until cooked through, about 10 min. per side.
 
 Heat olive oil in saucepan over medium-high heat. Add garlic, and 
 cook until lightly browned. Add potatoes, thyme and wine; lower heat to medium,
cook, stirring constantly, until wine is absorbed- ab
 out 7 minutes.
 
 Add squash and 3/4 cup of broth and cook, stirring, until broth is 
 absorbed, adding up to 3/4 cup more as needed until vegetables are tender. Stir
in spinach leaves and parmesan, remove from heat.
 
 Remove chicken from pan and pour off excess butter. Add 1/2 cup broth 
 and place over medium heat. Cook until reduced to 2 Tb, about 4 minutes. Stir
into risotto.
