Very nice! I did scale the recipe, but tried to maintain proportions. I used all the ingredients, including the cinnamon, which, I admit, I did cut back on a little. The oregano and cinnamon are in such small quantities that you can't really pick them out of the whole flavor. They do add a certain something, and I think I'll go for the full amount of cinnamon next time. I cut the chicken and tomato in smaller pieces, and think that the cooking went more quickly because of it. I also sauteed the garlic separately in order not to burn it, which I have a tendency to do. Just a lovely dinner. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us.
