Skinless, boneless chicken thighs?? Can they be braised?

I have some boneless, skinless chicken thighs and I need a braising recipe. Some sort of "one-pot wonder." Thanks!

I braise boneless skinless thighs all the time. So tender and delicious. These are to chicken what the ribeye steak is to beef

This recipe for oven-roasted chicken shawarma from Sam Sifton is really good (and easy) and calls for boneless skinless chicken thighs.

I really enjoy tagine style cooking with chicken thighs. This one especially, has me drooling - can't wait to try it.

But just about anything you make with bone in thighs can be made with boneless. Although I agree that stirfry would be my preference when faced with bone and skinless chicken.

There is a great recipe for braised chicken thighs in alice water's "simple food" cookbook. I've made it many times.

This recipe for Sweet and Tangy Chicken Thighs takes less than an hour to make and is a great one-pot dish for any night of the week:

Sautéed Chicken Thighs with Fig-Orange Chutney is equally delicious, but requires a little extra prepping time:

Make a Cajun braise-as in Gumbo! Any Chicken based gumbo recipe does great with skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut up in smaller pieces.

The recipe below is for chicken on the bone. I wouldn't braise boneless thighs. I would stir fry them. Or marinate and grill them. I know that doesn't answer your question.

This recipe is from the NY Times several years ago - Murgh au Vin:
It's an Indian twist on Coq au Vin - unexpected and very good. I've made it with skinless thighs (as called for) but I don't see why it wouldn't work with boneless too. All you need is rice to go with it. A braise, and a surprising variation, so kind of a wonder....
