Yucatecan Garlic-Spice Grilled Chicken

This is another excellent recipe from Rick Bayless. Very tasty, very simple. Make extra, because the leftovers are amazing.

6 garlic gloves, unpeeled
1/3 cup olive oil
4 tablespoons cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon sugar
8 boneless chicken thighs

Cut a slit in the side of each garlic clove. Place them in a microwave safe bowl, cover, and microwave on high 30 seconds. Remove the husks, and mince.

Add the remaining ingredients. Stir to combine.

Place chicken in a gallon size freezer bag with marinade, and marinate 2-4 hours.

Grill over medium high heat 10 minutes per side, or until chicken thighs can hold their own weight when picked up with tongs.
