Crush cloves and cardamom seeds with a mortar and pestle until fairly finely ground.
Combine all ingredients except chicken in a large bowl and mix well.
Lightly score chicken pieces with a knife and place in marinade.
Marinate for 24 hours.
When ready to cook, grill on medium-low heat for about 40 minutes turning pieces every 10 minutes until chicken reaches 165 degrees.
To bake instead, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place chicken pieces on a wire rack inside a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Broil for an additional 5 minutes and check to be sure chicken is 165 degrees.
