  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 4-6 1x


Units Scale
  • 3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 4 medium yukon gold potatoes, diced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 large carrots, diced
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup white wine or white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Fresh cilantro, roughly chopped for garnish


  1. Pat chicken thighs dry with a paper towel. Season both sides of each thigh liberally with salt, and pepper.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a dutch oven or large stew pot over medium high heat. Add the chicken and cover the pot with a lid. Cook for 5-7 minutes until golden brown on bottom, remove lid and flip chicken thighs over. Cook for another 5-7 minutes, covered with lid, again until golden brown and cooked through (temperature reaches 165˚F). Remove to a bowl, shred with two forks, and set aside.
  3. Drain excess fat out of pan, and when back on heat, pour half of the white wine (or white wine vinegar) into the pan. Deglaze the pan by scraping the browned bits off the bottom of the pan (keeping it in the pan!).
  4. If necessary, add another tablespoon of olive oil to the pan. Saute onion, and carrot in pan over medium high heat and until softened, about 7 minutes. Add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant.
  5. Add the pepper, turmeric, cumin, coriander, and ground ginger. Sauté for 1 minute stirring constantly until fragrant.
  6. Deglaze the pan again with the rest of the white wine (or white wine vinegar), scraping up browned bits on the bottom of the pan.
  7. Add the potatoes, shredded chicken, chicken broth, and cinnamon stick to the pot. Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover with a lid, and cook for about 30 minutes, until chicken and potatoes are tender. Garnish with fresh cilantro.
