Rec: Chicken Thighs With Crispy Prosciutto And Foie Gras Pate

5 ounces foie gras pate
8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
5 ounces thinly sliced Italian prosciutto
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste
salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons corn oil

Cut pate into 12 rectangles, and place onto a plate lined
with plastic wrap. Place into the freezer. Combine chicken
thighs and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl. Seal with
plastic wrap, and place in refrigerator to marinate for
1 hour. Gently fry the prosciutto in a large, nonstick
skillet over medium heat until crispy. Drain, cool and
crumble into a bowl. Season with garlic powder to taste
and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175
degrees C). Remove chicken thighs from the marinade
and pat dry with paper towels. Discard marinade. Lay
the chicken thighs out flat on a clean work surface.
Season with salt and pepper, then sprinkle crumbled
prosciutto in the center. Place a cube of pate on top of
the prosciutto, then wrap the thigh around the filling
and secure with toothpicks. Heat corn oil in a large
skillet over high heat. Place thighs into oil, and cook
until browned all over, about 5 minutes. When browned,
place thighs seam side down into a glass baking dish.
Bake in preheated oven until the chicken is no longer
pink, and the juices run clear, 25 to 30 minutes,
depending on size.
