If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or oven until heated through.


  • Replace the mozzarella cheese with feta or goat cheese for a tangy twist.
  • Add diced sun-dried tomatoes to the mushroom and spinach mixture for added flavor.
  • Top the stuffed chicken thighs with a drizzle of balsamic glaze before serving.


  • Make sure to properly secure the opening of the chicken thighs with toothpicks to prevent the filling from spilling out during cooking.
  • Feel free to customize the filling with your favorite ingredients, such as diced bell peppers, onions, or herbs.
  • For a crispy exterior, sear the stuffed chicken thighs in a hot skillet before baking them in the oven.
