Help me find Passover Seder recipe - Chicken cinnamon milk matzah celery & egg?

Been searching online every year for a recipe we cooked in 2008 or 2009. We lived in the Boston area then and we physically had in hand the recipe torn from the newspaper; which paper, I don't know. The recipe was specifically for Passover Seder dinner.

Chicken pieces were marinated overnight in some kind of milk-egg-cinnamon mixture, then sauteed (first dipped in matzoh meal) and there was some crazy thing about celery stalks being used in the pan to keep the chicken off the surface (??) (not quite sure of the purpose actually). IOW, the celery wasn't meant to be part of the served meal.

FOR SURE the recipe featured chicken, matzo meal, cinnamon and celery stalks. The milk and eggs I am not positive. But every search I do online comes up empty. Even

Anyone remember this? The recipe sounded so strange at first-read, yet was SO delicious.

** EDIT ** Turns out the recipe I was talking about (1) does not contain milk, (2) is recommended as a "nonseder Passover meal" and (3) seems to be from "The Gefilte Variations...'' by Jayne Cohen. (Thanks Chocolatechipkt.)

  1. Try posting on the Kosher board you will probable get lots of help there.

    1. It would be surprising if a dish for seder had both meat and eggs since this combination is not kosher.

          Meat and eggs is totally kosher, but meat and milk is very not. I would be shocked if the recipe called for actual milk, although almond milk is a possibility.

            You are right. No milk.
            The recipe is linked below by Chocolatechipkt.

            Chocolatechipkt, I love you.
            What terms did you search for or how did you conduct your search?

              Glad I could help! :)

              I think I just searched with the keywords: Passover chicken cinnamon "celery stalks" (using the quotes to try to distinguish it from all the other chicken recipes that use other celery.)

          2. Gefilte Variations is out of print now. But that recipe, along with the others from Gefilte Variations, appears in my later book, Jewish Holiday Cooking: A Food Lover's Treasury of Classics and Improvisations. --Jayne Cohen
