    • 3 tablespoons oil
    • 1 medium onion, sliced and separated into rings
    • 2 lbs chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch chunks
    • 1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained

      Loved this! Followed the recipe except discovered I forgot to buy yogurt and it was still very good. Just the right amount of spiciness. Smells fabulous while cooking and quick to put together. Will make this again! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      Wonderful! Out of laziness, I used whole, skinless, bone-in chicken thighs. Delicious and simple to make.
