For this dish boneless chicken thighs were used. You can chop these to mimic the original recipe, or leave them in one piece. I prefer the chopped chicken thighs as they are easier to eat and blend nicely with all the ingredients.

Tips and tricks that can help while cooking this meal

I find that seasoning chicken before cooking and leaving it in a fridge for 10 minutes prior to cooking is a great way to tenderize chicken. I also, love using dried spices like onion and garlic powder, as they really give flavor, but you do not have to deal with chopping and dicing. These spices are my special trick when I am busy and just do not feel like chopping onions.
