    Juenessa's Note:

    The bay leaves give a faint flavor akin to allspice, and the cinnamon stick contributes its own subtle note.

      I had to use regular bay leaves, but the result was great for me, especially like that it's a very very low sodium recipe. Very good and would also serve as a fine base to which steamed vegetables or leftover chicken could be added.

      Wonderful! I made 2 servings and could have eaten them both myself! Love the cinnamon infusion, I used a full 3" stick and wouldn't reduce that at all. It was delicious with some herbed chicken. I think I'm going to be making this often.Yummmmm
