Cheesy Chicken Thighs

Note that my picky son would never eat this unless the chicken was cut up and mixed into the rice along with the veggies.


  • 6 chicken thighs
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese
  • seasonings of choice
  • toothpicks
  • olive oil
  • 1 bag frozen broccoli and cauliflower
  • cooked rice


  1. 1. mix shredded cheese of choice with seasonings
  2. 2. make another mixture of favorite seasonings to add to chicken
  3. cut chicken thighs almost in half, leaving one edge intact
  4. 3. put shredded cheese mixture in chicken, fold, and secure with a toothpick.
  5. 4. rub seasonings on chicken and place on well oiled cast iron skillet
  6. 5. cover and cook at 350 degrees until fully cooked.
  7. 7. serve with rice and veggies (I chose broccoli and cauliflower)
