I remember reading a recipe for this some time back but now I can't seem to find it. Does anyone remember what thread that was?

Hi MiMiM,
I can across this Garlic Cinnamon Chicken recipe.. I am not sure if this is what you are looking for. I got it off the Recipe Goldmine.
Cinnamon Garlic Roast Chicken
1 (3 pound) chicken, cut up
Pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder (or 2 cloves fresh, minced)
2/3 teaspoon cinnamon
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 cup water
Clean chicken well.
Combine salt, pepper, garlic, and cinnamon. Sprinkle mixture onto all parts of the chicken. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a roasting pan with vegetable oil spray.
Remove chicken from refrigerator, and place in roasting pan. Sprinkle with paprika. Scatter onion slices around chicken, and roast uncovered for 35 minutes.
Reduce heat to 350 degrees F.
Stir onion slices, add the cup of water, and continue roasting for an additional 50 minutes until tender, basting occasionally.
I also found a Orange Cinnamon Chicken Recipe on Tasty Crockpot recipes.. I have never made any of these recipes. please check ingredients before using..
Orange Cinnamon Chicken
3-4 lbs (more or less) chicken pieces
1/4 lb butter
1 cup chicken broth
2 cups orange juice
1 cup raisins
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp flour
salt & pepper to taste
Heat butter in a large skillet, and brown chicken. Remove chicken to cooker as they brown. Combine all other ingredients, except flour, in skillet. Mix well and pour over chicken. Cover pot, turn on LOW and cook 4-6 hrs, or until chicken is tender. Remove one cup of sauce from the pot and combine with flour, mixing well. Return sauce flour mixture to the pot. Turn pot on HIGH, and cook an additional half hour. Serves 4-6.
I hope this help..

That first recipe sounds REALLY good! I'll have to try making that. Yum! I ended up looking on some recipe websites and I did find one similar to the second one you chose (with the orange juice). Then I found another one that had honey, wine and curry.
I kind of made up my own combination of both these recipes(omitting the raisins since I don't like them) and adding garlic and carmelized onions. I browned boneless thighs and put them in my crockpot.
I wasn't so sure how it was going to come out since it's kind of a strange combination but it actually came out pretty good! Even my kids liked it. I served it with noodles but rice or couscous would have been good.
Thanks for responding!
