  1. Combine all ingredients, except yogurt and cilantro, in slow cooker. Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or low for 6 to 8 hours. Stir in yogurt and cilantro. Yields about 1 cup chicken with sauce per serving.
Chicken thighs can hold up to a long, slow cook time - they may shred if left in for too long but the dish will still be just as delicious. You can easily double this recipe. It freezes well.
