Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a 6 qt Dutch oven over medium heat, add oil and anchovies, if you are using. Toast the anchovies and break up with a wooden spoon. Add chicken thighs and brown on both sides. Remove chicken to a plate and add onions and garlic. Stir until soft and fragrant, then deglaze the pan with chicken broth, stirring well to get all of the brown bits off the bottom of the pot.
