I love my job, I really do but there are some days when, dreaming of world domination, I wish I could tell my daffy clients to go stick it where the sun don’t shine…. today for instance i’ve been searching for a venue that I know doesn’t exist yet I go on searching, desperately trying to please the client… and the numb-skulls that work at these places… for goodness sake!… WHY don’t you know the capacity or ceiling height?!?! What is it you fucking do then?
… where’s my cookbook and little shop selling fabulous things i’ve created in the kitchen?
… calm down… breath… well, dear reader, tonight for dinner we are having chicken thighs, smothered in cream-cheese and freshly torn basil and then wrapped in a wonderous maple-cured bacon that is wafting the most mouth-watering smells up through the house…
always on the search for something different to do with my beloved chicken thighs (so cheap and so tasty) I stumbled across this in one of those free-bee cookbooks that you get with coupons and this one was from Philadelphia Cream Cheese…. i’ve even done a veggie version for The Big V using Quorn sausages, smeared in the cream cheese and wrapped in veggie bacon, although Lord knows what it’ll taste like! I think The Big V is getting a little fed up of me messing with his food…
… I don’t think I need to explain how to make them (smother thighs in cream cheese and basil, s and p and then wrap in bacon… roast for at least an hour) but there you go.
happier boy now
eat and of course, enjoy!
I have lot's of chicken thighs in the fridge and didn't know what to do with them and I have all the things needed to make this and I think I will!! Thanks!

Don't you just love a good rant? Then, the after rant cooking is almost as good as after argument sex … did I SAY that?
Chicken thighs and a decadent sauce … wonderful!
Dom at Belleau Kitchen says
susan… you are soooo naughty!
Sam… hope it tasted good!
Deffo prefer sex to cooking 😉
Anyway, love chicken, cream cheese and bacon together- but MUST try it with maple bacon and basil, sounds heavenly…

Well, what DID the quorn version taste like? I am resisting any comment other than that! (no no.. I am really resisting even a small innuendo…)
Wow…..hahaha!!!! I DEF needed a good laugh today 🙂
This looks sinfully delicious!
