Serves: 5-6


  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 (7 oz.) pack deli Swiss cheese
  • 1 (8 oz.) pack smoked deli ham
  • 1 lb. baby potatoes
  • 1 tbsp. salt
  • ½ tbsp. pepper
  • 1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. parsley
  • 1 tbsp. parmesan cheese, grated
  • rosemary (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place chicken thighs on a plate and pat dry with a clean paper towel. Combine all seasonings in a small bowl. Sprinkle half the seasonings on the chicken thighs.
  2. Place a large cast iron skillet on the stovetop and bring to medium-high heat. Add avocado oil to the pan.
  3. Once the pan is hot, place the chicken thighs in to sear on both sides.
  4. While the chicken thighs are searing, rinse and cut baby potatoes. Place the baby potatoes in a mixing bowl and coat them in the remaining seasonings and avocado oil. Make sure they are well coated. Place them on a baking dish with a few sprigs of rosemary (optional). Set aside.
  5. Once chicken thighs are seared, remove them from the stovetop. Fold deli ham and wrap it around the chicken thigh.
  6. Place potatoes and chicken thighs in the oven to cook for 20-25 minutes.
  7. Once the chicken thighs have finished cooking, place sliced Swiss cheese on top of the ham. Put back in the oven for a few minutes to melt. Once the cheese has melted, remove it from the oven to rest.
  8. Remove potatoes and garnish with parsley and grated parmesan cheese.
