  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a small bowl, mash and mix the cheese, 2 tablespoons of breadcrumbs, and the pepper with a fork. Lay the thighs, smooth side down, on a work surface. Crumble on the cheese mixture, then press to flatten. Roll up the chicken thighs and secure with a sturdy, pointed toothpick.
  2. Spray all sides of the chicken bundles with olive oil from a mister, or coat with a pastry brush dipped in olive oil. Spread 2 tablespoons of breadcrumbs and the salt on a sheet of waxed paper. Dip the thighs into the crumbs to lightly coat all sides. Shake off excess. Set on a large baking sheet. Mist all sides with olive oil.
  3. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until golden.

We love chicken thighs & gorgonzola, so this was a natural. I rolled in panko w/ granulated garlic added to panko.

Quick and easy, a big hit with my family. As the first reviewer mentioned it took longer to cook than the recipe called for. I used a thermometer to insure proper temp. I will make this again an...

Sooo good and easy to make! Actually took the advice of one review and used bacon to close up the cheese instead of trying to roll a chicken thigh. Perfection!

i did mine with gouda instead of gorgonzola, and VERY random cracker-based bread crumbs but it was awesome!!!

Very quick and easy to make. Elegant enough for company and DELICIOUS!!! About 15 minutes of prep and 20-25 min to bake. I made te recipe exactly as stated and got rave reviews from my family...
