Oaktown Spice Shop co-owner Erica Perez wrote this recipe to use with their Persian Lime Curry Rub. She recommends serving the chicken with rice and salad or roasted veggies.

1–2 tablespoons Persian Lime Curry Rub
Salt
4 bone-in chicken thighs
2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 cup water
4 cloves garlic, minced

Sprinkle chicken with the Persian Lime Curry Rub and salt, making sure to coat both sides. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. When it’s hot, brown the chicken on both sides, about 6 minutes per side. Add the water and garlic. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and braise for about 25 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
