Preheat a gas grill, or start a wood or charcoal fire, or preheat broiler. The fire should be moderately hot and the rack should be about 4" from the heat source.
Combine the garlic, onion, oregano, cumin, cayenne, cloves, salt, pepper and oil in a blender or small food processor and blend until fairly smooth. Add the juices, taste and adjust seasoning. The flavors should be powerful.
Smear sauce over chicken. If time allows, marinate 30 minutes or so. Grill 6 to 10 minutes a side, or until the meat is nicely browned and thoroughly cooked. (Thighs with bones may take up to 20 minutes to be totally cooked.) Serve, garnished with the cilantro.
