Caprese Stuffed Chicken Thighs
Chicken thighs stuffed with plum tomatoes, fresh Mozzarella cheese and basil is a deliciously easy weeknight meal idea that's loaded with flavor.
- 6- 5(ounce) Bone-In Chicken Thighs
- 2 Plum Tomatoes, sliced
- 6 oz. Fresh Mozzarella, sliced
- 2 tbsp. Chopped Basil
- Olive Oil or Cooking Spray
- Kosher Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Place 1-2 tomato slices (depending on how small) under the chicken thigh skin, top it with a slice of fresh mozzarella and basil (either whole leaves or chopped is fine); then drizzle some olive oil on top of the skin (or use an olive oil cooking spray) and season with Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Place the chicken in an oven safe baking dish and pop it into the oven for about 50-60 minutes (depending on the size of your chicken thighs) until a minimum temperature of 165 degrees F is reached (I prefer mine at 180 degrees).
