I had some Greek Dressing left over from a couple of weeks ago when I made the Spinach Feta Pizza. I also had some goat cheese left over from when I made the Sun-Dried Tomato Stuffed Chicken. Wanting to use it up, I decided to take a taste the Mediterranean with these Greek-Style Chicken Thighs stuffed with tangy goat cheese and marinated in a bold and zesty Greek Dressing, then baked until golden brown.

Here’s how I made it:

Greek-Style Chicken Thighs | Servings: 4 | Time: 1 Hour 15 Minutes

Ingredients:

  • 6 skin/bone-in chicken thighs
  • Greek Dressing
  • 6 to 8 ounces goat cheese

Directions:

Divide up the goat cheese into 6 equal portions for each of the chicken thighs. Loosen the skin with your finger. Lift up the skin and smear the cheese under the skin. Gently fold the skin back into place and press the cheese from the outside of the skin to help it disperse under the skin.

Shake the dressing well, and pour over the chicken. Marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator.

After one hour, take the chicken out of the refrigerator and place it into a cold oven.

Set the oven temperature to 400 degrees F.

Bake the chicken uncovered for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until done.

I served the chicken with some couscous and snaps. We also drizzled more dressing over the chicken for some extra flavor.
