Greek Stuffed Proscuitto Wrapped Chicken Thighs

That was a mouthful. Literally and figuratively.  I actually just had my mouth full of these and let me tell you. It was pleasant. Quite pleasant, actually.  I must apologize in advance for the photos as my lighting was pretty much non-existent and this isn’t the prettiest dinner of all time :D

So want to hear what happened to me today? It is completely un-chicken related.  Today I had to drive 2.75 hours to get to a clinic to in-service them on my product (that I sell for my real-life job) and then drive back.  That took me all day.  Normally this would make me borderline crabby but I left the house with an Americano with coconut milk (fave, ever), a springy floral skirt on, and the sun shining through my sunroof (see Instagram for proof).  I was in a great mood, and even had a pretty good time in the tiny Wisconsin town… but then the drive back happened.  Most of it was lovely and had the prettiest, fluffy summer clouds I have seen since probably last summer, but then the storm began.  I don’t just mean your regular run of the mill storm either.  THE SKY OPENED THE EFF UP.  I drive more than your average joe and never really feel the need to slow down during rain but I literally couldn’t see for a good 10 minutes.  It was absolutely pouring and then it started to mix with hail. Super tense and really unpleasant.

But guess what? I survived.  Lucky for you guys or you wouldn’t be getting this awesome recipe (or any others in the future for that matter).  I hope none of you had to experience something like that on an otherwise glorious Friday.  I also hope you all have super awesome weekends full of sunshine and fun!

  4. Add garlic and shallots and stir until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes
  5. Add spinach, artichoke hearts, and olives
  6. Mix well and cook for 4-5 minutes, if some pieces of artichoke are too big, just use a flat ended spatula to break them up a bit more
  7. Remove from heat and set aside in a small bowl until cool enough to handle
  8. Scoop the mixture into the chicken thighs and wrap them, don’t overfill too much
  9. Wrap each chicken thigh with a slice of prosciutto and hold together with two toothpicks
  10. Drizzle olive oil into ceramic or glass baking dish
  11. Place wrapped chicken thighs into the dish
  12. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until juices run clear or internal temp reaches 155 degrees
  13. Enjoy!

    I just tried this last night and myself and my hubby LOVED it! So easy and pretty inexpensive (other than the organic chicken). I did try it with chicken breast rather than thighs. I would recommend using the thighs as the breast turned out a bit dry. But all in all one of our fave Paleo recipes to date!!!

      Thanks for all the LOVE Christa! I’m glad you and your hubby enjoyed it :)

  4. […] 97. Greek Stuffed Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken Thighs These chicken thighs have been given quite the treatment, first stuffed, and then wrapped up in prosciutto. They are stuffed with things like artichokes, olives, and spinach, all of which are Paleo goodies, and then wrapped up in slices of prosciutto which not only adds flavor but also serves the purpose of keeping everything held together. The advantage to a meal like this is that it contains everything you need for a complete Paleo meal, so you can focus your attention on just making this. […]
