Heavenly aroma! Delicious! Divine sauce. I made this based on Chef#28636's recommendation for Top Favorites of 2008 Game. I substituted ketchup for the tomato paste as I did not have a tube of it and subbed in 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon for the cinnamon bark. The size of the chicken is important, I cut mine too small and think the chicken itself was dry b/c of that. Now I think I should have left the breasts alone and not cut them up smaller. Served ours over noodles with salad, and Recipe#280877. Thanks lindseylcw for sharing.
