9 oz boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 carrots, diced
6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon finely grated ginger
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon tumeric
1/2 cup plain fat free yogurt
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1 cup white or basmati rice
Heat oven to 400Â° F.
1. Rinse the chicken thighs and pat dry. Cut each thigh in half. Season the pieces with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper.
2. Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven or skillet over medium-high heat.
3. Add the chicken and cook until browned, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
4. Add the onion, carrots, and garlic and cook for 1 minute. Pour in the broth and cook, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan, for 1 minute. Add the cinnamon, ginger, cumin and tumeric and the remaining salt and pepper. Bring to a boil.
5. Remove from heat and whisk in the yogurt. Stir in the raisins, almonds, rice, and browned chicken.
6. Transfer to an oiled 8-by-11-inch baking dish or 2-quart casserole.
7. Cover the casserole with foil. Bake until golden, 25 to 30 minutes.

Good--made the kitchen smell yummy! I used cubed chicken breasts instead of thighs. I think you're supposed to add cooked (or almost totally cooked) rice to the recipe because I was using brown rice and the cook time was closer to an hour. I don't know if this would be shorter using white rice. - 1/17/11
