  1. This is a great recipe. Since cooked tomatoes and cinnamon have so many health benefits, it's good to have a dish that combines the two ingredients.

  2. Actual cooking of the chicken is done when the consumer reheats the product. On the other hand, fried chicken is completely precooked during the frying process. Frozen fried chicken is reheated mainly to raise the serving temperature.comfort food recipes
