Versatile Mexican Chicken Thighs

Chicken thighs are coated with a seasoning mix composed in part of typical Mexican flavors: cumin and oregano. They are then cooked on the stovetop for an easy, flavorful meal. The thighs may be eaten as a main dish accompanied by sides of tortillas, refried beans, tomato salsa and perhaps Mexican rice. Or consider them as fillings for warm corn tortillas. Either way, I think you'll like these -- both for their flavor and for their ease of preparation!
