This is an updated version of the stuffed chicken thigh recipe.  I’ve done a couple of things to up the flavours in this dish – first, I cooked down the onions, garlic and mushrooms with some oil, salt and pepper and second, I’ve sprinkled some sweet paprika on top of the chicken before cooking it.

Serves 4-6
