Roasted Stuffed Chicken Thighs

© 2021 |

© 2021 |

Chicken thighs are super cheap and bursting with flavour. These are filled with a wild garlic stuffing for a tasty and budget-friendly meal. You can stuff chicken thighs with anything you like, herbs, garlic, fruit, quinoa, nuts, cheese and vegetables. Try your favourite combinations and be creative.

  • 120 g Wild garlic, chopped
  • 1 tsp Fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp Peppercorns
  • 1 tsp Finely grated lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp Hazelnuts, toasted and chopped
  • 2 tbsp Pepitas, chopped
  • 4 tbsp Olive oil
  • 4 / 800 g Chicken thighs, bone in and skin on
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Rinse wild garlic thoroughly and dry. Roughly chop them. Crush the fennel seeds and peppercorns finely in a mortar and pestle. Place chopped wild garlic in a vegetable chopper together with crushed fennel seeds and peppercorns, lemon zest, nuts, seeds, and olive oil. Process until the mixture has a paste-like consistency.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Loosen the skin of each chicken thigh, then ease the paste under it. Season all over, then put in a baking tray and roast for 40 minutes or until the meat is cooked and the skin is crisp. Serve with pearly barley salad or simply with a side salad.

Chicken is always my 'go to' meat, although I have to admit that I usually opt for skinless breast fillets. Not the cheapest option I know, but hopefully a little on the healthy side!

I must admit that your lovely crunchy skin does look so tempting though and I like the sound of the flavours mixed together in the stuffing!

Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a good week :)

Chicken thighs are so juicy and tender and I love the blend of flavors in your seasoning mix. Wish I could find wild garlic!

Very creative flavoring for chicken! The thighs are the best cut these days IMO -- good flavor, and enough fat without being too fatty. Good stuff -- thanks.

Angie, This is a very attractive dish! My wife will usually only eat thighs...doesn't like breasts so this is perfect for her. I'd have to leave out the fennel...not my favorite spice. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
