Stuffing chicken thighs is my new favorite thing to do. You have the luxury of cooking the meat through, without running the danger of drying it out. I love the contrast of the sweetness of the boniato and plantain and the saltiness of the Serrano ( proscuitto makes a good substitute). The touch of citrus at the end is an unexpected pleasure.
