Very upbeat spicy, but not overbearing sauce on the chicken. The chicken comes out juicy and very flavorful. Would be great over rice or with noodles. Watch that you don't get heavy handed with the cloves or the garam masala. you need to keep the spices in balance. I'll try this recipe with pork too! Thanks Tory

Very simple, easy and delicious. I will double all the spices next time, though, as it is very mild.
