Heat oil in medium size pan over medium heat. Add onion, saute 3 minutes. Add garlic, saute 1 minute more. Add tomatoes with juice, chicken, corn, cinnamon, salt , cloves, cumin and pepper. Bring to boiling over medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, simmer, uncovered for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Tootie's notes: 2 things you need to know, if you use tomatoes with salt added, leave out the salt, it is tooooo much salt for us. You either love or hate this stew. So, you may want to try this before you serve it for guest. We love it with tomato corn bread, sour cream dolloped on top and cheese fried sticks.
