Rice Stuffed Chicken Thighs Recipe

Stuffed Chicken Thigh are also knows for being called "Solomon Golubtsi". They are known to be served at Slavic weddings as one of the main dishes. In our family we prepare them for holidays and special celebrations.

This dish has a nice balance of meat and rice. I like the tenderizer chicken around the rice with baked crispy skin of the chicken.
