  1. Looks fabulous... sorry I haven't been around for awhile, I moved to the US Virgin Islands (I still giggle when I say that) for six months, and it is taking awhile to get settled. But i do think I am caught up, and will be back with new postings...

    Come take a look at my new blogs of Island life!

    And I am seeing lots of chickens on teh island, so I need to save all that I can

  2. I am pretty convinced that I shall never be able to go back to eating chicken without cinnamon on it. This looks fantastic!

  3. OK Catherine, I'm sold on this chicken, it looks fabulous! we eat chicken at least three times a week. Yeah I have a new recipe to try, thanks for sharing it.

  4. What a delectable chicken Catherine! Love your addition of curry powder and cinnamon!

  5. I love all the seasonings... very tasty!

  6. The chicken sounds super flavorful with the basil and curry powder and cinnamon additions!
