Chicken Thighs with a Crabmeat Stuffing

GriffinGriffin Posts: 7,080

Had some chicken thighs, but felt like doing something a bit different last night. So we deboned them and made up a crabmeat stuffing to go with them.

Thank goodness for Mrs. G. I'm not so handy when it comes to rolling them up. Rubbed down with DP Tsunami Spin and then they went on to the Egg at 400F with apple wood chips for smoke

After 20 minutes, they were done.

Served them up with a wedge salad.

Turned out pretty good. I didn't get as much of the crab flavor as I was hoping for. Not sure if I didn't add enough or if it was because I used canned (all I could find) versus fresh. Will definitely try again with fresh to see how it compares. Money shot!

I love the time change. I can actually get pictures of food on the grill with natural sunlight. So much better than a flash.

    Very nice plated photo  -- might have to try this while using Myron Mixon's method of "cupcake chicken thighs"?  Kind of boils them in chicken broth for the first part of the cook>

    Looks beautiful @Griffin!  Very creative.  Your wife has definitely got a knack for that sort of thing.  If I did that they would end up looking like the chicken was in a fight with the crab and they both were severely injured. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Griff, first of all the cook looks outstanding. I love the "cubed" wedge idea. I've never seen it like that before, just the standard quarter-head of iceberg.


    6oz of crab seems woefully tiny(at least for us Marylanders). Over here, you'll see "Chicken Chesapeake" on many menus that have chicken breast stuffed with crab imperial.

    Perhaps you could double the crab meat and use bread crumbs as a binder? That would at least keep the "stuffing" flavors. Imperial would push it towards crabcake-stuffed chicken - which would still be awesome.

    That would be a very interesting fight to watch. My money is on the crab. They have a taste for chicken(that's been my experience with crab pots).

    Had a leftover thigh for lunch today. Either I inhaled too much apple wood smoke last night or bourbon. My taste buds must have been way off. I could easily tell there was crab in it today. Good stuff for sure.
