  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

  • Red Pimiento Sauce
  1. Combine the oil, oregano, allspice, cumin, cloves, and garlic in a large bowl. Add the chicken breasts and cover with the olive oil mixture. Cook on a preheated grill over medium heat for about 30 minutes or until the juices run clear when the chicken is pierced. Remove from the grill and keep warm.
