      Mark, this was a lovely change of pace for us. I thought I had just about 'chickened' myself out, but no...! This is a real winner. I loved the aroma of the toasting seeds. It made the kitchen smell wonderful. The cinnamon was just the right amout. I marinated it in a large Ziploc bag, and just kept turning the bag over to make sure it was all covered. Served with a tomato, cucumber and onion salad. What a wonderful meal. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

      Just the right flavor for this hot spell we are having. I used skinless breasts cut up, marinated overnight & then skewered they were wonderful. Served with a huge veggie salad (raw Broccoli, cauliflower tomatoes etc etc) with no dressing and had Ginger salsa on the side Excellent dinner

      We loved this had the right blend of spices. I made up the marinade and used it with chicken thighs. I froze the package flat, so it took little effort to thaw it out! I would definately do this one again!
