Cinnamon Spiced Chicken and Pepper Medley – Serves 2

More experimentation gone right!  I love cinnamon on everything and best of all it is good for you!  Cinnamon has many health benefits: slows the rate of digestion, improves blood sugar control and response to insulin making it a great spice for those with type I and II diabetes, anti-clotting effects, and may help stop the growth of bacteria.

This dish is absolutely delicious, colorful, and best of all, EASY.  I made this concoction the other night for dinner but when I had it for lunch the next day… it was the Rolls Royce of leftovers!
