  • Yields: 5 (2 per serve)


10 chicken thigh fillets

½ block Philadelphia cream cheese (125g)

20 dried apricots

30 baby spinach leaves (approx. 15-20g)

Salt and Pepper

Toothpicks required


1Flatten chicken fillets lightly with a mallet (I do this under a plastic bag so they don’t splatter)

2Cut the half Philadelphia block into 10 slices

3Cut each apricot into halves so you have 40 pcs

4In each flattened fillet place one cream cheese stick, 4 apricot halves and 3 spinach leaves.

5Roll up or fold together into a parcel and secure with 2-3 toothpicks

6Repeat until all ten are filled and secured

7Place these parcels (open side up) into slow cooker

8Season generously with salt and pepper

9Cook on low for 5hrs

10Liquid will form during cooking, that’s ok

11Remove toothpicks once plated or leave in place if you prefer

I find breasts can be a little dry but you could use them. I’d probably mallet them out a little thinner to allow for wrapping, or cut a pocket into them for the stuffing
