    Annie H's Note:

    Chicken thighs stuffed with sautéed mushrooms, wilted spinach, and shredded Monterey jack cheese. This dish is light-tasting and a little sweet.

      Made for dinner for DH and myself this evening - excellent recipe. Since the recipe didn't state what to saute the mushrooms in I used about 1 tablespoon of butter, I also added one clove of garlic out of our garden to the mushrooms before wilting the spinach. Only additional spice I used was rosemary, as I had some laying around. Very easy to prepare and, as other reviewers stated, very pretty and tasty. Thanks for posting Annie.

      Was looking for a stuffed chicken recipe with mushrooms and spinach and came upon this one. After reading all the great reviews and being intrigued by the addition of paprika and honey, I wanted to try it. It was my first time making stuffed chicken and today I feel much more confident in patching those little thighs together. It was a very pretty dish and smelled fabulous; however, I do agree with several who believe it could be made tastier with spices. Next time I make I may try adding basil or oregano and garlic to the stuffing and using using mozzarella, muenster or parmesan to give it more bite. I may also use a dry white wine as the liquid to add to the dish before putting in the oven. In the end, this was good as written and very, very pretty. I look forward to continuing to perfect in the future!
