Not only is this quick and easy but it smelled and tasted great! The ingredients give the dish a complex flavor and the leftovers were fought over the following day. Will make this again soon...

My family enjoyed this recipe, however (sheepish grin) I forgot to add the milk, raisins and capers to the dish. It was very good though!

IT WAS GOOD MINUS THE CAPERS...NO CAPERS UNLESS YOU LOVE THEM,BUT OTHER THEN THAT WAS GOOD .I SERVED IT WITH A SALAD,AND GARLIC BREAD.EASY AND FAST MY KIND OF MEAL.

I never made a main dish with cinnamon. I was happy that both my husband and mother-inlaw (who was staying with us at the time) enjoyed this recipe. I will be making it again.

Easy to make and a good weekday meal. We really enjoyed this dish.

eASY TO MAKE AND FLAVORFUL,NOT CRAZY ABOUT THE RAISINS.EVEN MY TWO YEAR OLD GRANDSON LIKED IT.SO I PRINTED THE RECIPE FOR HIS MOM.

I really enjoyed the subtle taste of cinnamon in this dish. All of the flavors blended nicely together. I don't know that I would use capers again as that was the only taste that seemed a little stronger than the rest. A good sign was that my kids ate it - no questions, no arguments!
