Recipe by Mikes Goddess

I have my second husband to thank for this recipe. He mislabeled the cinnamon as cayenne pepper and the rest is history.

Made for PAC, Spring 2007 ~ Was very hesitant to make this recipe, but then decided to plunge right in ~ I did used a homemade spaghetti sauce, & I also used chicken breasts so can't tell you how it would be with the thighs! Distinctly different, but good-tasting! Something I'd make again if only to see the reactions!
