kotopoulo kapana

Κοτόπουλο Καπαμά

kotopoulo kapana

Kotópoulo kapaná (or kotó kapaná) is one of those dishes you are more likely to see in a Greek home than in a restaurant. Sometimes called ‘cinnamon chicken’, pieces (usually just the legs and thighs) are braised in a rich sauce of cinnamon, onions, garlic, tomatoes, tomato paste, olive oil, oregano, and pepper flakes, then (in Greece, anyway) served on top of pasta with a sprinkling of fresh parsley and grated kefalotyri.
