Based on your set and EVs, I would definitely go with Thunderbolt, as it provides more coverage rather than the lackluster Recover that won't do much with your defenses.

If you wanted to use Recover, I would recommend a Soul Dew set.

Your Ev's are jank for your moveset... I say niether, unless the 252attack is suppost to be Sattack. If so I say thunderbolt.

Recover is good for a stall or wall set, but for a sweeper Thunderbolt would be better. At least in my opinion.

Defensive Pokemon are good with roost and recover, and High HP Pokemon. But when running a sweeper set I say thunderbolt as better definitly. And as you said, recover is a move that will be countered partially if not fully when your opponent attacks. I say Thunderbolt for sure.
