Stuffing chicken thighs with cheese, herbs and other ingredients creates a moist, juicy dish that's bursting with flavor in every bite. Some butchers and grocers sell stuffed chicken thighs, but you can easily create your own version at home to suit your tastes. If you're making your own, look for boneless thighs; skin-on and skinless are both suitable for this dish. Ham, spinach, feta cheese, Parmesan and aromatics, such as lemon zest, fresh herbs and garlic, are all excellent options for stuffing chicken thighs. Whether you're using a store-bought or homemade version, stuffed chicken thighs cook effortlessly in the oven in about 40 minutes.

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Arrange the stuffed chicken thighs, seam-side down, in a baking dish or rimmed baking sheet. Line the dish with aluminum foil or parchment paper for easy clean-up, if you wish.

Step 3

Place the chicken in the oven and bake uncovered until the internal temperature reaches 165 F, about 40 minutes. Allow the chicken to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
