Cut very shallow little lines into the skinless chicken thighs and add them to a gallon sized zipper bag or a bowl.
Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl, then add yogurt to make a paste.Add mixture to the zipper bag or bowl. I like using a zipper bag because I can massage the spices deep into the chicken this way.
Let marinade in the refrigerator for at LEAST 8 hours, 24 hours is best. You can do this before bed one night and pop it in the oven after work the next night.
Remove the majority of the marinade before cooking the chicken.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and cook on a sheet pan for 35-40 minutes. Or until it is 165F and has a dark finish.
Cooling Cucumber Sauce to Drizzle Chicken (Optional)
Blend 1 cup yogurt, 1 med cucumber and a few mint leaves until smooth. Drizzle over chicken as desired before eating.
You can serve this on its own or topped with cilantro, green onions and cooling cucumber sauce.
