Chicken Maryland with a cheesy crusted skin

I do love Chicken Maryland

I’ve posted a few Chicken Maryland recipes here but I can’t help myself it’s my favourite cut of chook. The Chicken Maryland contains the best parts of the chook, viz., thigh meat, lots of excellent skin and the crunchy cloaca with a level of fat that gives it so much flavour.
