Stewed Chicken

We often associate cinnamon with sweet foods, but it works in savory dishes as well, like this stewed chicken. Try this sweet and savory recipe:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound chicken breasts
  • Salt (optional) and pepper
  • 3 cups chopped vegetables of your choice. We like spinach, carrots and onions. Fresh or frozen will work.
  • 1 can (15 oz) diced tomatoes
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • Fresh or dried parsley for garnish (optional)
  • Rice or couscous for serving (Cooking times vary, so make sure you plan accordingly so it is ready when the chicken is done.)
  1. Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan. Sprinkle the chicken with salt (if desired) and pepper and add to the pan. Brown each side of the chicken.
  2. Add the vegetables to the pan and sauté until soft, 5-10 minutes.
  3. Add the tomatoes, cinnamon, cayenne, turmeric and cumin. Simmer until chicken is cooked through (to 165 degrees Fahrenheit) and vegetables are soft, about 20 minutes.
  4. Top with parsley (if desired) and serve with rice or couscous.
