I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Chicken Bacon Bombs

Bam! These succulent chicken thighs explode with flavour! Easy enough for weekdays and impressive enough for entertaining.


8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs

1 cup chopped spinach

1/2 cup cream cheese

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/8 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp dry basil

1 cup shredded mozzarella

8 strips of bacon

1/4 - 1/2 cup BBQ sauce to baste

Open up each thigh, place between two sheets of wax paper and flatten with a mallet. Mix the salt, garlic powder, pepper and basil together and season the inside of each piece.

Combine the spinach, cream cheese and mozzarella and divide into 8. Spoon mixture onto the chicken and fold around it. Then take a slice of bacon and wrap around it all. Spray a baking dish with a little oil and sit the prepared thighs in with space between.

Bake at 400°F for 25 minutes. Then baste with your favourite BBQ sauce and return to the oven for 10 minutes or until the internal temperature reads 165°F.

Makes 8
