This was a very nice stir fry, I really liked the combination of the spices, they were a bit different from the usual. I used the allspice rather than the cloves, and I had chicken thighs rather than breast, and served it with jasmine rice, my favorite. I also served it with coriander as I had some to use up. A very nice dish, and thank you for posting. Made for ZWT#6 2010
