Ok.. I know this might sound weird (possibly even gross), but chicken seasoned with cinnamon actually tastes really good!!
It gives the chicken a uniquely sweet flavor.
I really recommend trying it out before passing any judgments!
I like chicken drumsticks the best, so I always make this dish with drumsticks. But I'm sure you can do this with other parts of the chicken too.
Its so fast and simple: I sprinkle cinnamon and kosher salt under the chicken skin, and put the skin back in place. Placed the drumsticks on a baking sheet, and baked at 415 degrees for about 35 minutes. It came out salt, sweet, crunchy on the outside, and perfectly moist on the inside.
This is my go-to dish when I am rushed whipping up a meal. ( I got home from work at 8:00pm today, and I was eating dinner by 8:45pm, because I made this dish. What a life saver!)
