Cherry Sauce Over Chicken
Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). In a small bowl, combine salt, cumin and coriander and rub into all sides of thighs. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Place 4 thighs, skin side down, in skillet and cook until fat starts to render and skin becomes crispy and brown, about 3 to 5 min. Turn thighs over and cook for another 3 to 5 min. Set aside. Sear second batch.
Transfer thighs to a baking sheet and roast until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear, about 20 to 25 min.
Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine cherries, water, sugar and vinegar. Simmer over medium-low heat, mashing cherries lightly with a fork until they release their liquid and thicken into a sauce, about 10 min. Season sauce with pepper and serve with chicken thighs.
