French Fridays with Dorie – Cinnamon-Crunch Chicken

Cinnamon-Crunch Chicken |

A great partner to Dorie’s Creamy, Cheesy, Garlicky Rice with Spinach is her Cinnamon-Crunch Chicken, this week’s ‘French Fridays’ recipe. It’s quick, incredibly easy to put together and serves the purpose of a quintessential ‘weeknight-meal’. The flavor is warm and comforting, as it reminded me of a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch (one of my very favorite cereals!)!

We completed the trio with a fresh & bright garden salad and enjoyed dinner outside on the patio… which, was absolutely perfect, given our recent weather. Almost looks like Orange Chicken, doesn’t it? Hmmm… now I want Chinese! ­čÖé

Such a luscious looking chicken dish you came up with! Did you manage to find speculoos or did you use other spicy cookies to make this? And I bet it tasted great with last week’s cheesy, garlicky rice.
