Lj's Ham & Cheese Stuffed Chicken


This really is a simple easy recipe! Perfect Sunday night dinner! No real recipe as such, the picture ^^^ says it all! I have made these plain because I have really fussy eaters. You can literally stuff them with whatever you like... my faves being sundried tomatoes, kalamata olives and camembert being one! Paremsan and pesto, gorgonzola and chopped walnuts even... Use your imagination and flavours you enjoy.

I have not included measurements here, you can make this for 2 people or 20 people!

Ingredients:

Chicken thighs without the bone
Tasty Cheese cut into squares weighing approx 20 grams (half the size of a match box)
Bacon with the rind and fat removed (Parma Ham or proscuitto is also delicious)
Lean thinly sliced ham

Here is what I do... Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Remove all fat from the chicken thighs and lay flat on the top of a slice of bacon long ways. Wrap the cheese in the ham and then lay that on the chicken thigh in the centre. Wrap in the bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place into a baking dish and pop into a preheated oven until golden and cooked through. This will depend on how many thighs you are cooking. I have only cooked 6 and used a dish just big enough for them. I baked these for 45 mins - an hour, turning half way during the cooking process. Pop under the grill for only a few minutes right at the end to crisp up the bacon if you like it that way. (Make sure you have a sturdy baking dish that can handle the heat)

I have served with steamed veggies and a low fat potato bake...

EASY huh! ENJOY =)
