1). In a wide pot, place the onions and oil and start mixing until translucent. Add the chicken, skin side down and brown for a few minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate and put the rest of the vegetables along with the onions. Mix until everything is nice and golden.
2). Arrange the chicken on top of the vegetables. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, paprika, cumin, turmeric, and eventually add the water and thyme. Bring to a boil, and cover. Reduce the heat to the lowest possible and cook for an hour (during that hour, use a spoon to pour the sauce over the chicken). At the very last stage of the cooking process, bring the heat up and allow to boil for 2 minutes so that the sauce gets nice and thick.
Best served with some basmati rice.
