  1. Using a large heavy pot, brown the chicken in olive oil; then remove to a plate.
  2. Add onion and garlic and cook until soft and translucent. Add cinnamon and ginger and allow the flavors to develop for 1 minute; then return the chicken to the pot. Add the lemon juice, stock and honey. Reduce heat to simmer, cover, and gently cook for 1 hour.
