I didn't add the dash of cloves which I didn't think would make a big difference, but this didn't have as much flavor as I was hoping for. Also, the batter on the chicken didn't stick well so when I put it in with the sauce to simmer, most of it came off and the chicken was no longer crispy.
This recipe is GREAT!! I do have a suggestion thou... make sure the almonds do NOT have the skin! I learned that quick! I would say to anyone---try and you will like this one! Thanks BecR!
