Crispy Lemon + Thyme Stuffed Chicken Thighs

I kind of love lemons. Like, just give them all to me. Shove them in every crevice of every food I eat and drink and let me love it.

That’s sort of what happened with this recipe, and that’s probably why I adore it. 

As you probably know by now, I subscribe to Plated and get ingredients for two meals sent to me every week. I always keto-ize them, but this one needed very little tinkering.

Before you scoff at the fingerling potatoes, hear me out. I’ve been reading a lot lately about starches and how you should have some starch (not grains) every 3-7 days for a balanced diet. I’m all about balance. Besides, I had plenty of carb-room left for the day. Like, all of it.

So for this recipe, I allowed TWO fingerling potatoes. Not just because I wanted to try out some starch but also because I didn’t want my chicken to burn, y’hear?

Don’t want to opt for the starch? Figure out something else to throw under your chicken. I was going to do green beans and be good, but they weren’t looking so hot after a whopping two days in the fridge. Does anybody else have this problem, or is it just me?
