  • Preheat a grill for medium heat.

  • Lay the chicken thighs out skin side down on a clean surface. Spread an even layer of the crab mixture onto each one. Roll up chicken and secure with toothpicks.

  • Place the stuffed thighs seam side down onto the grill, and season with garlic salt and onion powder. Cover, and cook for 20 to 30 minutes, turning occasionally for even cooking. Chicken is done when juices run clear when pierced with a fork.

Note

Chicken may also be baked in an oven at 450 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 7 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and cook for an additional 45 minutes.

The thighs I used were too small to hold in all the stuffing. However the stuffing was very tasty. My family loved it. I will definitely make this again but I think I will use turkey or chicken cutlets. Read More

This was a good recipe which I used to base my final dish on. Stuffing chicken thighs is quite difficult so I pounded the meat first to make thinner and easier to stuff. I also added to the crab mixture pine nuts currants bacon and used wholmeal bread crumbs instead. From a similar dish I had made before I combined 1 cup of sourcream with 1/2 tablespoon of paprika and poured over the chicken. I baked in the oven uncovered for 40 minutes. It was great. Read More

I tried this recipe and as far as taste goes I would make it again. I made a few changes and left my suggestions here to anyone to use. The amount of bread cubes is too much for 6 chicken thighs unless they are very lage thighs. Also the next time I think it would work better to use boneless/skinless breasts as it hard to contain the mixture in the thigh meat Read More

An absolutely delicious meal. I took advice from another and punded the chicken and made it easier to roll. I added mushrooms but didn't add the sherry. Put in oven 175C for 50 min and served with rice mixed with bacon peas onion soya sauce and some vegeta. HOne yr old loved it and husband loved it more. Thankyou for this one. Read More

This was really yummy. We cooked them on our little charcoal grill; it was really hot when we put them on so they cooked in less time than called for. I had 5 thighs and I basically halved the stuffing and it barely fit in; unless your chicken thighs are really large you may want to make a bit less stuffing esp since you don't want to waste any of that crab meat!

The flavor was good but I had a hard time cooking the chicken all of the way with out it becoming dry. I did like the stuffing but did not add the crabmeat. May have this again but not for along time. Read More
