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.

Recipe and directions can be found HERE

Sorry to hear that the flavor wasn't quite what you were hoping for but they certainly look good - definitely worth another try!

I like the two little "oysters" you had on the left, were those for mid-cook snacking?? :D Never thought to add crab to chicken, but looks good, way to be creative!!

Griffin,

Was it hard to stretch the thigh around the stuffing? I wouldn't think that stuffing a thigh would be easy?

There is a restaurant in KC that I used to frequent that serves crab stuffed chicken breast. Sometimes it was a hit or miss on whether it was cooked well, but when it was, the taste was ethereal. Good times.

Thanks for sharing.

I love how you cut the lettuce they way I cut my grapefruit "supreme" style. I will definitely serve my next wedge the same way.
