Place the chicken thighs, skinless, in a dish suitable for the oven, sprinkle with thyme, salt and pepper. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 200ºC for about 15 minutes.

Finely chop half the onion and cut the other half into julienne strips. We clean the carrots and cut them into sticks lengthwise. Mix the yogurt with the paprika and the chopped onion in a deep bowl. We stir well until integrating.

After 15 minutes of cooking the chicken, add the carrots and the julienned onion to the source. Cover and bake another 15 minutes. After this time we take the chicken out of the oven and add the yogurt and paprika preparation. Bake again uncovered 15 minutes more or until the surface of the chicken is slightly golden.
