Superb! You can really taste the cinnamon which makes these special. No cheese necessary!

I didn't especially like the cinnamon addition, it gave it a different flavor that I am used to. It also would have better had there been a sauce on top (I can't remember the name, but it usually is a white sauce). Thanks for sharing, though, it's always fun to try something new.

This recipe is delicious! Made it for dinner tonight, it made the house smell great and tasted even better! I used nutmeg in place of cinnamon because I couldn't find the cinnamon for the life of me. I also cooked the chicken breasts in a can of mild enchilada sauce before shredding it. Served with homemade salsa and homemade guacamole.
