- Put the couscous in a bowl and pour over the stock. Stir in the garlic then cover and set aside for 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, wash and drain the spinach the put it in a pan with just the water that clings to the leaves. Cover and cook over a gentle heat for 2-3 minutes until just wilted. Refresh under cold running water and drain. Squeeze dry using your hands then roughly chop and put it into a bowl with the thyme and Parmesan.
- Ruff up the couscous with a fork and stir it into the spinach. Season to taste and stir well.
- Open out the chicken thighs on a board. Divide the spinach and couscous filling between each thigh and roll them up again. Stretch each bacon rasher with the back of a knife to lengthen slightly then wrap a rasher around each chicken thigh to hold the filling in place.
