I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Mediterranean Stuffed Chicken Thighs

Couldn't believe how tasty these were !

6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
6 large basil leaves
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
2 tbsps parmesan
6 slices deli ham
2 tbsps sundried tomatoes in oil
3 (+1) garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp oregano
1 tbsp capers

Gently roll out chicken thighs between sheets of wax paper or in a waxed cereal bag.

Sprinkle oregano over them and spread the minced garlic over top.  Then divide the sundried tomatoes and lay a basil leave on each thigh.  Mix the 2 cheeses and divide evenly on the thighs.
Take a slice of ham, lay your chicken piece on top and roll them up together.  Tie with string or hold together with toothpicks.

In a heavy saucepan heat 2 tbsps butter and 1 tbsp olive oil.
Lightly brown the thighs on each side then remove.

To the pan add 1 minced garlic clove, brown lightly.
Add 3/4 cup white wine to deglaze the pan.
Add 3/4 cup chicken broth, 1 tbsp capers and 1 tsp parsley.

Return thighs to pan, cover and simmer 30 minutes.

Remove thighs and keep warm.

To thicken sauce add 3 tbsps butter and 2 tbsps cornstarch to the pan.  Whisk until thick.

Garnish with parsley
