Very tasty! Made as written with b/s chicken thighs. It was slightly sweet, but not too sweet and the addition of the cinnamon gave it a nice flavor kick. Both my DSs liked it so that is a huge bonus! Made for Photoless Recipe Tag in the Photo Forum.

What a great recipe - I followed it exactly as written and it was a very tasty and colourful dish! I thought the crushed cornflakes made it just a bit on the dry side - and when I make it next time, I think I will make an apricot sauce to go with it - to moisten it up......but, a GREAT low fat recipe - thanks for posting this,we loved it!
