  1. In a small bowl, stir together the butter, 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder, and 1 tablespoon of parsley. Spread the butter mixture 1/2 inch thick onto a piece of aluminum foil, and place in the freezer to harden.
  2. Place the cereal in a large plastic resealable bag, and crush with a rolling pin. Add the remaining parsley, 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder, paprika and salt, seal the bag, and shake to mix.
  3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  4. Remove the slab of butter mixture from the freezer, and slice into 6 strips. Place one strip onto the center of each pounded chicken breast, roll up and secure with toothpicks. Dip rolled chicken breasts into buttermilk, then into the cereal mixture. Place coated breasts into the prepared baking dish.
  5. Bake, uncovered, for 30 to 40 minutes until chicken is no longer pink, and the juices run clear. The outside should be crispy and golden.

Try rolling your chick breasts in egg (beaten) and then flour. Place in the refrigerator for at least an hour to allow the sealing to take place - otherwise your butter oozes out and the seal helps keep it in. After you pull them out of the refrig - roll in buttermilk and I used plain corn flakes. I agree with the other reviewer - parsely (even dried) in your butter stuffing mixture makes this more traditional, beautiful and palatable. In addition, I used minced fresh garlic instead of powdered - just my personal preference.

The taste isn't bad, but not spectacular either. The taste alone would warrant 4 stars. However, I'm giving it 3 because this meal is so darn hard to prepare. Be prepared for one heck of a mess when you make this. Is it worth it? On a regular basis, no, but it is a nice change of pace. It's not a bad idea to double the sauce/stuffing recipe. It seemed on the light side to me.

This is a good recipe, I grew up eating chicken kiev as my family is acually from kiev...I haven't had it in a while because of the high calorie content, but that has now changed, i did make a few changes, first I added fresh parsley to the butter mixture, when it's ready and you pierce the chicken it's much more pallate pleasing that way. Then, I also use a little flour after i roll the chicken, when combining this with eggs instead of the buttermilk, it helps to seal the butter inside. I also double rolled the chicken in bread crumbs. Overall this is a fantastic way to eat chicken kiev, I made it for my eastern european grandma who was a professional chef for 40 years, and she knew the difference right away, but even so found it to be very good. Enjoy!

This is mine but I had a few tips. If you add the rest of the cereal mixture with a little buttermilk/butter they are great to add to each bite of chicken. i call them "crunchies". i kinda guesstimated at the amounts of spices, you can figure out how much of what is best for you. i looove garlic and the sweetness of the cereal with it tastes sooo good. Since the honey sweetened flakes seem to be gone try frosted flakes!! It is very good! also I've made this with chicken tenders, melted the butter mixture and injected them instead of rolling around the frozen butter. faster and easier and just as good!

This was really good, but I made a few minor changes. Instead of making my own butter, I used pre-made garlic butter. I won't do this again as the garlic flavour was just too strong. Instead of using butter milk, I used an egg wash as this seals the chicken so all the butter doesn't leak out. Lastly, I did not use honey corn flakes, I just used regular cornflake crumbs which I seasoned. This was a really good/quick dish, we'll definitely eat it again.

This recipe was sooo good. I was totally skeptical of the seasonings with the sweet cereal, but they complimented each other so well. I tried another chicken recipe from this site that I thought I would like but didn't at all, and I almost didn't try this because of it, but it was soo good. I used some Sazon instead of paprika (didn't have any) and it was just great. From one Jess to another, Thanks!

This is now one of my husbands favorite meals. It's easy and quick to make. I my own variation of it with omitting the garlic powder from the butter mixture and adding some lemon juice. I also use regular bread crumbs or crushed stuffing mix (when I use stuffing, I don't add the other spices) instead of corn flakes. Lastly, I dip the chicken in either ranch dressing or eggs (whatever I have around) instead of using buttermilk. It's a great recipe!

I love chicken kiev in restaurants but have never been able to duplicate it at home, this recipe comes close. The only thing I would change is instead of using sweetened cereal for the coating, I would use plain corn flakes. Next time I may also just try italian-seasoned bread crumbs and leave out all the other spices that are supposed to go into the coating. The contrast between the sweetness of the coating and the chicken was just to odd for my family's taste. Other than that, the chicken tasted great and I will definitely be making this recipe again.
