Veggie it up I ended up adding zucchini and squash to the sauce, came out great. Also did not have kitchen string, used dental floss instead - worked like a charm.
De-boning the thigh was a challenge, no "pocket" to put the stuffing in. The solution is to flatten the thigh somewhat, making it the same thickness all around (not pounding). Then put the stuffing on, leaving a bit on the sides, roll and tie. I prefer dark meat, and this allowed me to enjoy it in a very delicious way. A little more time, but still able to put the meal on in a timely manner.
