Turkish, Greek, Italian, Indian and Moroccan are the first to spring to mind.

I found it! it was for a Chicken Pho with noodles, herbs & lime -

the recipe called for charring a cinnamon stick, star anise pod, and a peice of fresh ginger. I had never done this before - what a wonderful flavor emerged from this.

an old cook, still learning new tricks!

Here a relevant dish;

Chicken Treviso. It is Italian I think and uses cinnamon and cloves along with a tomato based sauce, onions and mushrooms. THe chicken is cooked like most italian dishescoated w/ a little flour and then seared, then put in with the sauce and simmered for about 30 min.

I added garlic, not sure if the original recipe called for it, also instead of mushrooms I used green peppers because they are aromatic and thought that would go well. It came out real well, you might try using some cloves with your cinnamon. I did not add parsley which I would have if I had in my kitchen, dont know how this would affect it.

ALso consider tomato sauce or perhaps lemon juice as these are on the sour side and may bring out the flavors.
