Simple. No salt either. I made this for dinner yesterday with couscous cooked
with cashews and salt free beef broth and pepper.

Squeeze the ginger in a garlic press to extract the juice, then mix with the
cinnamon. Rub into the chicken and leave in a cool place for 2 hours or
overnight. Heat the butter and oil in a heavy skillet or Dutch oven that can
go into the oven. Cook the chicken till well browned. Add the grapes, cover
and bake in a 375 deg oven for 40 minutes or until tender. Turning the
chicken half way and basting at least twice. The grapes make the liquid. For

oven or skillet, to 1 tablespoon of corn starch. Mix in the 1/8 teaspoons of
ginger and cinnamon and mix the paste into the hot liquid. Simmer only till
the sauce starts to thicken and then spoon over chicken.

and cinnamon with a tablespoon of oil or water added to rub the chicken. (My home page) (collection of
