  • cooking spray

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken thighs

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 egg

  • ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

  • 1 small onion, minced

  • 1 Roma tomato, seeded and diced

  • 10 black olives, pitted and minced

  • ½ cup seasoned bread crumbs

  • 6 toothpicks

  • 1 pound red potatoes, scrubbed and halved

  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and cut into 3-inch pieces

  • olive oil, or to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil; grease with cooking spray.

  2. Spread chicken thighs open on a flat work surface. Pound to an even thickness with the flat side of a meat mallet. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Beat egg with a fork in large bowl. Stir in 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, onion, tomato, and black olives. Mix in enough bread crumbs to bind the filling together.

  4. Put a spoonful of the filling in the center of each chicken thigh. Fold chicken over filling, tucking in any loose ends. Secure chicken thighs with toothpicks; arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese over chicken thighs.

  5. Arrange potatoes and carrots around chicken thighs. Drizzle olive oil over vegetables; season with salt and pepper.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until chicken juices run clear and vegetables are tender, 35 to 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the chicken should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
