Recipe by Christina
"Arugula was on sale and I wanted to find new ways to use it. This became a quick favorite. I've found that there's no need to preheat the oven; a little longer cooking time produces a juicy thigh with crispy skin."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

baby spinach leaves
bone-in chicken thighs with skin
This was SO delicious. I did tweak the recipe a bit - before I stuffed the thighs, I drizzled the greens/garlic with a little olive oil and mixed in some grated parmesan. The result was a flavorful, juicy piece of chicken. Yum!
I really enjoyed this chicken! Hubby is traveling, so I was looking for smaller portion recipes. I made two chicken thighs and wow, very impressive! You can really stuff a lot under the skin, so don't be afraid of the amounts! I think next time I might rub some seasoned salt under the skin and all over the chicken. 1/4 tsp was a bit much for my taste for just sprinkling on the top. This would make a nice meal for company, since it looks impressive but takes very little effort. Thanks for the great recipe!
OMG...this is one of the easiest and quickest-prep dishes I have ever made! Love, love, loved it! I used all spinach because I didn't have any arugula. Before stuffing the chicken, I drizzled a bit of EVOO on the spinach, added garlic and Parmesan to it, then mixed well to coat the spinach. I lightly sprinkled the stuffed breast with seasoned salt and black pepper. The chicken was moist, the skin was crisp, and my husband loved it! He thought it belonged in a restaurant. It was so good and EASY! We will be making this again and again.
I cooked it for one hour. It was swimming in juice. It was very very juicy. I'm not sure where all the juice comes from but it was good.
This recipe was fantastic! After trying the original, I put my own spin on it. I put seasoned salt and black pepper under the skin as well as on top. I also mixed garlic and crumbled feta in the greens prior to stuffing. You can't go wrong with this chicken dish!
