Boneless, skinless chicken thighs are quick-cooking, meaty, and more forgiving than leaner cuts; they’re guaranteed to stay juicy even if slightly overcooked. Here they’re rubbed with a heady spice mixture and served with a luscious yogurt sauce. Stirring a little oil into the sauce gives it satisfying richness; the cumin makes it downright irresistible.
