Preheat the oven to 180

Place the chicken on a roasting tray with the onions, garlic, lime juice, oregano, bay leaves and season with salt and pepper.

Liquidise the tin tomatoes or break down with a fork and scatter over the chicken. Mix in the tomato puree and sprinkle the cinnamon over the chicken pieces.

Place in the oven and cook for 1 hour. Add some water if it gets too dry. Check it is ready with a skewer or sharp knife.

Sprinkle with the chopped parsley and serve with roast potatoes or a crisp salad.
