“Arugula was on sale and I wanted to find new ways to use it. This became a quick favorite. I've found that there's no need to preheat the oven; a little longer cooking time produces a juicy thigh with crispy skin.”

Original recipe yields 1 serving

Directions

  1. Stuff spinach leaves, arugula, and garlic under the skin of the chicken thigh and place on a baking dish. Sprinkle with seasoned salt.
  2. Bake chicken thigh in the oven set at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 50 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

This was SO delicious. I did tweak the recipe a bit - before I stuffed the thighs, I drizzled the greens/garlic with a little olive oil and mixed in some grated parmesan. The result was a flavorful, juicy piece of chicken. Yum!

I really enjoyed this chicken! Hubby is traveling, so I was looking for smaller portion recipes. I made two chicken thighs and wow, very impressive! You can really stuff a lot under the skin, so don't be afraid of the amounts! I think next time I might rub some seasoned salt under the skin and all over the chicken. 1/4 tsp was a bit much for my taste for just sprinkling on the top. This would make a nice meal for company, since it looks impressive but takes very little effort. Thanks for the great recipe!

OMG...this is one of the easiest and quickest-prep dishes I have ever made! Love, love, loved it! I used all spinach because I didn't have any arugula. Before stuffing the chicken, I drizzled a bit of EVOO on the spinach, added garlic and Parmesan to it, then mixed well to coat the spinach. I lightly sprinkled the stuffed breast with seasoned salt and black pepper. The chicken was moist, the skin was crisp, and my husband loved it! He thought it belonged in a restaurant. It was so good and EASY! We will be making this again and again.
