– 1 tbsp vegetable oil
– 1 tbsp tomato paste
– 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
– 1 tbsp brown sugar
– 2 tsp dried oregano
– 1 tsp smoked paprika
– 1 tsp ground cumin
– 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

3. In a small bowl, whisk together the tomato paste, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, oregano, smoked paprika, cumin, cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, and chicken broth. Pour the mixture into the skillet and stir to combine with the onions and garlic.
