A lovely combination of spices and the chicken is beautifully tender and moist. This was a recipe from a supermaket promotion, which I have slightly adapted to my own tastes. Very rich, so we do not have it too often! Served over rice and with a fresh salad to counteract the richness. A few have commented that they were not so fond of the cinnamon in this dish, and so another spice combination that is good is to leave out the cinnamon and ginger and replace with 1 teaspoon each of nutmeg and cumin.
