Grilled Pesto Stuffed Chicken Thighs

Grilled Pesto Stuffed Chicken Thighs created by IngridH

An economical, yet tasty meal. Chicken thighs are flavored with pesto, grilled and then served on Italian bread. For the pesto, I use my favorite, Recipe #220704.

    These were really tasty, and easy to prepare. I had a small problem with flame-ups on the grill, but once I moved to indirect heat, the problem went away. The bread was yummy, I loved how it picked up some of the flavor from the chicken juices, as well as the garlicy flavor from the oil. I cut this in half, and found that for my family, I piece of chicken is enough ofr a meal. I think next time I would make this with boneless thighs, but that's just personal preference, not a reflection on the recipe. Thanks for posting such a great summertime recipe!
