Season the chicken with salt and place in a 5-6 quart slow cooker. Place the tomatoes through the cinnamon in a blender and puree until smooth. Add the mixture to the slow cooker, cover and cook on high until chicken is tender, 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low. Serve chicken and sauce over rice and topped with cilantro.
