What creamy sauce could compliment a spiced chicken rub that has cumin, and cayenne?

I have a spice mix that has brown sugar, cumin, cayenne, pepper, and kosher salt. I season bone-in skin on chicken thighs or breasts with it and roast it. It has become a go-to recipe, so easy and so full of flavor but I am trying to come up with some kind of yogurt or creamy dressing/sauce that might compliment the chicken. Nothing overwhelming but hardy enough to stand up to chicken. I was thinking maybe a garlic or cilantro sauce? Something greek or mediterranean? Any ideas?

You could grate fresh garlic into plain yogurt with a little salt and pepper.

creamy cashew sauce...fairly neutral and interesting, would go with the spices and enrich the whole dish. see, for ex, the sauce in this recipe...

Make this Pistachio-Yogurt sauce! I've used it to accompany chicken dishes and it just takes it up a whole another level! You can adjust the pistachio/lemon amounts to your liking (the more the better I think!).
