Herbs, capers and a touch of cinnamon highlight the tomato sauce in which these chicken breasts simmer. Serve with a short pasta such as fusilli or conchiglie to catch the sauce. From Ontario Chicken Lover magazine.

Pretty good recipe. Very unique tasting and smelling b/c of the cinnamon-tomato sauce mixture. Not bad, just very different. I used green olives over capers. Thank you for posting.
