Advieh is a signature spice blend of authentic Persian cuisine. Advieh is prized for its fragrant aroma and spiced flavor which is a perfect way to season and enhance chicken thighs. The chicken thighs should be cut into the same size pieces to ensure that they cook through at the same rate. We prefer thighs over breasts as the dark meat stays moist but the edges get slightly crisp when grilled over high heat.
