Preheat the oven to 180°C. Make a pocket in each chicken thigh by carefully cutting along the side. In a bowl, mix cheddar cheese, green onions, bacon, and minced garlic. Stuff the mixture into the pockets of the chicken thighs. Season the thighs with salt and pepper.

Place the stuffed chicken thighs on a baking tray and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Peel and cube the potatoes, then boil them in salted water until tender. Drain the potatoes and mash them with cottage cheese, butter, and milk until smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

6. Final tip
