Origin of dish:  Exotic
Type of cooking:  Oven
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 120 minutes
Ingredients (serves 6):


1) Mix orange juice, orange segments, lime juice, honey and mustard.
2) Arrange chicken in an oven dish with a lid.
3) Pour juice over chicken, sprinkle generously with curry powder and cinnamon. Season, then add 1 or 2 sticks cinnamon.
4) Leave to marinate for at least an hour.
5) Preheat oven to 240°C (450°F). Add almonds (raisins, cashew nuts - whatever you fancy!).
6) Cook for 2 hours.

Advice: This dish is even better if you replace the curry powder with saffron, for a more delicate taste.
It goes very well with rice, couscous and other cereals, try flavouring them, by using spices in the cooking water. Tabbouleh and salad also make great accompaniments.
