Cinnamon Chicken ( Modified from a family recipe)


1 boneless skinless chicken breast
1 cup tomato sauce
1 cup chicken broth
1 medium onion
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp granulated onion
1 tbsp raw sugar
Makes 2 servings


Saute the onions in the olive oil ( add some salt and pepper to your taste). Then turn the heat on low, place the chicken breast on top of the onions and add the remaining ingredients ( tomato sauce, chicken broth, cinnamon, turmeric, granulated onion, and raw sugar). Bring the liquids to a boil then cover and reduce to a simmer. After about 15 minutes, return to the pot and pull the chicken apart into "big shreds" . Let it cook for another 15-20 minutes ensuring the chicken absorbs the flavor of the sauce.  If the sauce is too liquidy at this point, uncover the pot completely and let it simmer for a few more minutes, allowing the liquid to evaporate and thicken the sauce.  Serve with basmati rice. 


  1. Sounds yummy! So do a few of the other recipes I looked at on your site.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. This looks super good as do the other recipes I've looked at on here. Will definitely be making some return trips back here.
