  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large resealable plastic bag combine flour, chili powder, cumin, ginger, and cinnamon. Add chicken thighs to bag, one at a time, shaking to coat chicken with seasoning mixture.
  2. In a very large oven-going skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken thighs. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until browned, turning once halfway through cooking.
  3. Transfer skillet to oven. Bake, uncovered, for 35 to 40 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink (180°F). To serve, place chicken on four serving plates.
