Heat the oil in a large casserole or heavy-based lidded pan, and fry the onions for 10 minutes until soft and translucent. Add the garlic and fry for 1 minute. Stir in the cumin and bay leaves, then add the chipotle paste (chop first if using chipotles in adobo), paprika, passata and stock. Bring to a simmer.
Nestle in the chicken thighs so they’re coated in the sauce, then reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 35-40 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the chicken is cooked through and very tender. Uncover for the final 10 minutes to thicken the sauce.
