This hearty stew is packed with punchy flavors. Tangy tomatoes, earthy turmeric, warm cinnamon, and a touch of brown sugar combine to form the flavorful braising liquid for the chicken. Slow cooking the chicken for over 4 hours further infuses the broth with flavor and makes the thighs tender and juicy. If desired, you can shred the chicken thighs, discarding the skin and bones, before serving in the rich broth. 

Note: If you would like to schedule this cook, but do not want to wait for the broiler to cool before refrigerating, broil pans as directed in Step 1 in a conventional oven instead of in your Suvie.
