30 Days Of Meals Under $15 – Day 26 Stuffed chicken thighs in passata


Total price – $14.95

Ingredients :

  • 4 chicken thighs
  • 1 small jar of basil & pine nut pesto (I find the Coles Brand for $2.99 the best),
  • 1 large jar of passata
  • 100g of brie cheese
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic, 
  • tablespoon of butter
  • 1 packet of linguini pasta.


  • open the chicken thighs so they sit flat
  • add a teaspoon of basil pesto and rub into each chicken piece.
  • Cut a small wedge of brie and place in the middle of the chicken.
  • Wrap the chicken up into a roll, you can use cooking string or toothpicks to hold together.
  • Brown the chicken in a pan on high for a few minutes each side and then place in an oven proof dish, pour the passata over the chicken and put in the oven for 30 – 40 minutes on 180.
  • While the chicken is cooking in the sauce boil up the linguini. Once the pasta is drained toss through the chicken and sauce.
  • I would avoid garnishing with any more cheese as the brie will melt into the chicken and the sauce.
  • Enjoy!
