  • Summary

    Gently simmering boneless chicken thighs in a flavorful cooking broth, helps them become tender and very moist. We go the extra step to make sure the chicken is as juicy and flavorful as possible. Once the chicken is cooked, we simmer the cooking liquid down by one-third, and then spoon the concentrated broth over the chicken.

    Ingredients

    • 3 pounds boneless chicken thighs (or combination of thighs and breast)
    • 1 medium onion, peeled and sliced
    • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and lightly crushed
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • Water
