Being not as thick, the thigh would probably cook a smidgen less time – maybe 30 mins less
The only other issue I see is that being much thinner the thigh fillet would be harder to form the cuts to fill
Yes you could 🙂

Hi just wondering if I could leave the cheese out as one family member is extremely dairy intolerant
What would the cooking time difference be if I used thigh fillets instead of breast meat??
Or don’t you recommend using them in this recipe??

Made this for the first time. Used Camel cheese and Honey BBQ Rum Sauce as that was all I had. The rest of the recipe was the same. It was awesome. Will definitely make again. Have past on this recipe to my daughter to try.

Very nice. Hubby loved the flavours. Used honey ham as the maple bacon was sold out. Also used smokey cheese slices. Rich and sweet flavour. Only cooked for 3 and half hrs, the chicken was very tender.
4 hours of pure torture smelling this cooking! Took about 4 minutes to devour! Tastes amazing, just like it smells!

This is SO GOOD! It’s not often that I get a full house of positive feedback on my cooking but this recipe definitely nailed it for all 4 of us.
I left out the paprika as we had none and just used the cheese and bacon I had available – it was delicious!
Served with garlic bread and wedges for a quick and tasty meal.
