Stuffed Chicken Thighs with GravyWith the great price on chicken thighs in the upcoming Publix ad, I thought I would share a super tasty meal that’s simple to put together – Stuffed Chicken Thighs with Gravy.

I originally came up with this recipe when I needed to cook up big boneless turkey breast. I don’t often have turkey on hand…I loved the taste so I started doing the recipe with chicken.

While you can do this recipe with chicken breast, I highly recommend you try it with chicken thighs. They cook up so juicy and tender and the addition of the gravy makes this a scrumptious dinner!

You can use any bread that you have on hand. I diced up some of the leftover hamburger buns that I had made over the weekend. This recipe is great to put any stale bread to use.
