    Lou van's Note:

    This is taken from Tonia Buxton, a Greek / English presenter who travelled around the Greek islands presenting "My Greek Kitchen". This is a recipe that she apparently got from Crete, its very easy and tasty and great served with her recipe for Cumin Potatoes (which I've also posted) and salad.

      This is a very good recipe, when I make a whole chicken it always ends up very dry but this was so moist and juicy. I think the tomatoes kept the moisture in and the seasoning of oregano and cinnamon was unusual, but fantastic. we really liked this in our house and will make it again. Thanks for posting Lou.

      Wow!!! This was the best roasted chicken. I made it as written and we loved it. It was perfectly cooked in 1 1/2 hours. It was tender, juicy, and the cinnamon was a nice addition. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT 6.
