This one has a long list of ingredients, but they are mostly all spices. Next time I would switch the thighs for cut up chicken breasts. Again there are no boneless skinless chicken thighs around here. Removing the skin was not difficult, but I left the bone in and they took forever to cook. The taste was excellent and I think bite size pieces would be better, especially for eating with the tortillas. The yogurt sauce was incredible! The kids really liked the flavor and told me several times how good they thought this tasted.
