Very yummy. I may have goofed a little, though. I didn't have whole cloves and I decided I would use about a tsp of ground cloves. (Should be about the same, right? HA) Then I realized that I was supposed to eventually REMOVE the cloves. (Oops!) It did taste a little "clove-y" but we still enjoyed the recipe! That's how I know it's a keeper! Also, I only used a little over 1 lb of boneless breasts (not thighs-even though I prefer thighs, I only had breasts on hand) but kept the rest of the ingredients the same. That way it made lots of sauce and that's how we like it! Thanks for posting!
