    Sharon123's Note:

    Cat Cora grew up with a Greek father and mother in Jackson, Miss., then spent time in Skopelos in the Agean islands in Greece. and has restaurants in Northern California. She is also an Iron Chef on Food Network TV. She says as a child she asked for this on her birthday, when she could pick anything she wanted to eat. She loved it so much she would bribe her younger brother to ask for it on his birthday too. From the cookbook Cat Cora;s Kitchen. If you can't find Myzithra cheese you may substitute kefalotyri, parmesan, or pecorino romano.

    1. 1
      Pat the chicken pieces dry with paper towels so they won't splatter in the pan. Mix the cinnamon, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Rub the chicken pieces on all sides with mixture. Mince 3 of the garlic cloves, set aside.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in a large, deep, 12" cast iron skillet(or stainless steel, but you want high sides-about 3") over high heat. Don't crowd the pieces in the pan or the chicken will steam rather than brown. If you need to, do in 2 batches.
    3. 3
      Add the chicken to skillet and brown for 4-5 minutes on each side, moving the pieces with a metal spatula so they don't stick to the pan. When the chicken is browned nicely on all sides, remove from skillet and set aside.
    4. 4
      Reduce heat to medium high and add onions and minced garlic. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until onions have softemed and are a rich golden brown. Add the wine and scrape the bottom of the pan with a spoon to deglaze, loosening any brown bits.
    5. 5
      When the wine has evaporated, add the water, tomato paste, and remaining 2 whole garlic cloves. Return the chicken to the pan. The liquid should cover about 3/4 of the chicken.
    6. 6
      Reduce heat to low, cover skillet with a lid, and simmer for about 1 hour, or until the chicken is tender and thoroughly cooked. If the sauce gets too thick, thin with a little more water. Taste and adjust seasoning to your taste.
    7. 7
      Great served with buttered noodles, rice, orzo, or macaroni. Sprinkle the grated cheese over the top of each serving. Enjoy!

      This was beyond words- it is spiced just right with the cinnamon and the chicken is nice and moist. The sauce on the rice is great!! I left the skin on, so it was kinda greasy, but "good" greasy and so filling. Every one loved this. I know it's good when I hear my DD say, "MMMMMM!" Thanks so much- made for ZWT6 and the Xtra Hot Dishes.
