1.) Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until soft. Add ginger, jalapeno pepper, cinnamon and cloves and cook for two minutes. Add remaining ingredients, except chicken and salt and pepper, and cook until plums are soft and mixture has thickened.

2.) When finished cooking, pour the whole mixture into a food processor and blend until smooth. Then allow to cool.

3.) Preheat grill. Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste. Grill on one side until golden brown, about five minutes. Turn the chicken over, brush with plum sauce, and grill for another three to four minutes. Then turn over again and brush with sauce. Continue grilling, turning, and brushing, until chicken is cooked through, about 12 to 15 minutes.

4.) Serve and enjoy!
