Chicken bundles stuffed with goat cheese and thyme

I was looking through the food I cooked when I was home on break and I wanted to share this recipe with you guys - it is great because it looks super fancy but actually it's quite easy!  I'd say it's a nice one to make for a small dinner party.  The stuffing of goat cheese, fresh thyme and crispy shallots with a white wine sauce is a classic and winning combination.  I found the recipe at cheese please , when searching for ideas of a  chicken and cheese recipe.

Travel Food Log: Street Treats in Siem Reap, Cambodia

sorry i have been M.I.A. - i cooked so much over the holidays, but also was busy with family, so i haven't posted photos yet! now i'm in the middle of exams.  BUT i just got my almost lost photos from cambodia and came across this tasty street treat! no, i didn't try it, but now on second thought i think i should have! look spicy ;)

when passing fields by motorbike, car, or tuk tuk, you can see plastic sheets hung up with fluorescent lights attached to them, in the bottom a shallow pool of water.  what are those for? i asked. why catching crickets at night of course! they are attracted to the light then fall into the water, then fried to crispy perfection the next day.
