Oh my, another Wednesday and not knowing what to cook. Have we got an idea for you: "Stuffed Chicken Thighs Wrapped in Bacon." The procedure is so simple and the taste is divine for these delightful thighs. As one member said: "Nobody could resist these."
Lay the chicken out on a plate. Season the thighs on both sides with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and thyme.
Prepare the stuffing according to directions.
Lay 2 or 3 tbsp of stuffing into the middle of each thigh and roll it up. You want it fairly tight.
Starting at one edge, wrap bacon around each thigh. Again, a bit tight and flare it out so it covers the entire thigh.
Spray or butter the bottom of a baking dish and place any remaining stuffing in. Put the wrapped thighs over top.
Season the top of the chicken with the garlic powder and paprika.
Place the thighs into a 425 degree F or 215 C preheated oven for about 45 minutes or until cooked through.
Serve and enjoy.

I always use pre-butterflied thighs, but you can butterfly them yourself.
Use a good bacon. A smoked maple bacon makes an excellent choice.
As always, adjust the seasoning according to your liking.
