Spicy Cinnamon Curry Chicken

image off google images

Another chicken dish from me today. When the hubby likes chicken, you have to find all kinds of ways to prepare it.
So that's what I do.
This recipe is one I found and tweaked a little.
It's got a bite to it, but overall, we thought it was a keeper.
Not to mention, it makes your house smell INCREDIBLE!

2 chicken breasts halved or chopped in pieces
2 Tbsp oil
Salt and Pepper

*Season chicken breasts and salt with pepper and cook them in a pan in the heated oil until mostly done--then remove from pan*

1 onion chopped
1 green pepper chopped
2 carrots sliced in diagonal pieces
1-2 cups broccoli
1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cumin powder
3 tsp curry powder
3 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup milk/cream

*Add veggies, spices, and half of the chicken broth to the pan and simmer until veggies are soft--about 15 minutes--stirring regularly. Add chicken breasts and remaining chicken broth and simmer to finish cooking chicken--about another 15 minutes. Just before serving add the milk/cream to cool the flavor and thicken the sauce*

Serve with rice
This dish is super spicy, so also serve with plenty of milk or water! :)
