I made this amazing recipe last evening and am already planing another appearance. Super health properties and simply marvelous taste. Love, love! the cinnamon. I wouldn't change a single thing (and that's saying something for me). Very high on the healthy list with taste that will bring you back time and again. Also, super simple marinating and quick grill time make this something that would be perfect for get together for a bigger crowd .
