  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 5.

  4. Add the cooked onion and garlic and the egg yolk and stir well to combine. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  5. Lay each piece of thigh meat out and spread with an even layer of the stuffing mixture. Roll up each stuffed chicken thigh and secure with cocktail sticks.

  6. Place each stuffed chicken thigh into a roasting tin and dot all over with butter.

  7. Roast the stuffed chicken thighs in the oven for 35-40 minutes, or until cooked through and golden-brown. Serve with roast chicken and vegetables.
