Not our favorite. I felt it was missing something, I thought about adding the cayenne as others had written but we dont typically enjoy very spicy foods either. My picky daughter did not like the cinnamon. I will say it was very easy to make, thats why the 3 stars. I served over rice with peas.

My husband gave this recipe 4 stars but I think it's a 5 star! I did what Lubie did and added some cayenne pepper to spice it up. I served it with whole grain noodles. I will make this again. Thanks for sharing!

I could not believe how tasty this turned out with so few ingredients (and only one spice; no added salt)! Super easy and fast. I was nervous smelling all that cinnamon (a spice my family is not used to in savory dishes), but the result is quite subtle. My super pick son ate every bite, so this is definitely a keeper. I thought 3 lbs of chicken might be overkill, but I no longer think so.
