"This fantastic Russian Chicken Kiev recipe has been my family favorite for the past 30 years. It is reasonably easy to prepare and is worth the time." — William Anatooskin

ground black pepper
dried dill weed
dry bread crumbs
vegetable oil for frying

This recipe is really good, however I had a hard time keeping the butter in the chicken. I fried the chicken for about 2 minutes on each side, then baked it for about 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven and it came out perfectly. I did use more dill, because I love it. A great recipe!
I have to disagree with everyone who said this recipe was 'easy'.
To keep it short and sweet, be prepared. It was messy, time consuming (getting the chicken wrapped securely around those pats of butter is HARD....rolling the chicken breasts pierced with skewers/toothpicks in the coatings and getting them well-covered is even harder!!) and the end result was very bland. Maybe I should have used some salt (which is not listed anywhere in the recipe)??
Bill this recipe is wonderful. It is fairly easy to make & delicious. I did use the coating mixture for chicken nuggets for my son & he loved them. I have already added this to my recipe box.
I will NEVER buy a packaged kiev again. I think the dill did it. Followed receipe, only added BonBell cheese (1/2) per breast. All I can say is excellent. Fried to brown, finished in oven (350 degrees for 30 mins.)
You all have to try Uncle Bill's recipes. He's great.
I mixed dill, parsley and garlic powder into the butter. Boyfriend (Russian) thought it was fantastic. Thanks!
My husband and I just love it! I didn't have to change the recipe at all!
Excellent recipe. I need to practice the skills but even for a first time, this turned out very well and my family all enjoyed it, even the picky eaters. This is worth the effort for a special dinner, but isn't overly fussy. I used a meat thermometer to gauge the chicken which also helped.
