Concord Grapes. I came home to a great-smelling house. You can brown the chicken first, but I didn't.

2 lbs chicken thighs (I used boneless, skinless)
1 T ground cinnamon
1 T ground corriander
2 red pears, cubed (red for color)
1/2 cup Concord grapes, split and seeded
1/2 small onion, diced
Black pepper to taste (abt 1 tsp)
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
sour cream
soy sauce

Rinse chicken and pat dry. Roll in a mixture of the cinnamon and corriander. Place in a large pan and cover with pears, grapes, and onion. Sprinkle with pepper and top with broth, then cover pan with foil; roast until chicken is done (I cooked at 300 for about 2 hours but this will vary depending on the size of your thighs - don't go there - and whether or not you use boneless).

Top with a drizzle of soy sauce and sour cream (mixed together, equal parts).

How did the fool *get* his money?!
