Life of Spice: Cinnamon Chicken

In today's post I'll be showcasing my guilty pleasure- Fried Chicken. According to Wikipedia.org, Frying is the cooking of food in oil or fat, a technique that originated in ancient Egypt.

The chicken was allowed to marinate overnight. I did the basics for frying my chicken except I added cinnamon to the flour mixture and then dusted the chicken. I proceeded to fry it over medium to high heat. 
For the sauce, I peeled and cut the flesh from some mangoes and blended it has though I was making a drink. 
I then poured that mango mixture into a sauce pan and brought it to a boil. Seasoned (escalion, thyme, onions, ginger) and added ketchup. Turned the flame down to low heat and allowed it to simmer for 4-5 minutes. I really enjoyed this meal, it was bursting with flavour and crunchy- just the way I like it.
