Stuffing chicken thighs is an easy way to up your culinary game without the hassle of deboning a chicken for a whole ballotine.  For everyday dinners or to impress your friends, the finished dish looks a little fancy and tastes great.        

This dish uses the Thermomix to make the stuffing and then cooks the chicken in the Varoma.  I love that the steaming keeps the meat nice and moist, and that the stuffing packs heaps of flavour.  Steam vegetables in the Varoma bowl while cooking the chicken for an all-in-one meal.
