"A real Kiev recipe, with seasoned butter rolled up in breaded chicken breasts for a richness fit for royalty! This recipe takes a bit of time, but is well worth the effort." — William Anatooskin

8 (4 ounce)
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
ground black pepper
ground black pepper
dried dill weed
dry bread crumbs
chopped fresh parsley
This is dry like alot of chicken dishes, my trick for all chicken I make is to marinate in BUTTERMILK for 30-40 minutes. Makes any piece of chicken tender no matter how you cook it. Hope this helps
Takes WAY more fry time than is listed. Fried them for 10-15 minutes on each side and they were still uncooked in the middle. This was too much effort and hassle for a mediocre outcome, I will not be making this again.
Kiev has always been the requested "birthday" meal, even now that my children are adults and home for a visit. Also was the end of term foods lab test for my high school classes. If it did not "squirt butter" you did not get full marks :-) so here are a few tweeks to an already good recipe. Include oregano, parsley & real minced garlic to the chilled butter. Once wrapped around the butter, first roll the chicken in seasoned flour, then the egg wash, then the seasoned bread, cracker or potato chip (plain) crumbs THEN wrap tightly in wax paper and chill for at least a half hour, longer if time allows. Can be made a day ahead. Only unwrap when you are ready to place in the hot fat. This avoids the need for tooth picks completely.
A lot of work but very tasty. To keep it a bit healthier, I baked in the oven at 350 for 45 minutes and it browned up nicely.
Great to prepare ahead of time and cook later. Wonderful flavors.
The first time I served this recipe my husband went nuts for it. He asks for it all the time. Now he has started enviting all of his friends over to try it. It is a really great recipie. :o)
This was FANTASTIC!! Fairly easy to prepare, & the taste is incredible! The only thing I had a prob with is using toothpicks to hold it together. I LOVE the way the butter squirts out when you cut into the chicken. I made this for my in-laws & they LOVED it! Thanks for a GREAT recipe!
At our lake cottage without any cookbooks, I wanted to make chicken kiev so went online and found this great recipe. My nineteen year old daughter, the food critic, loved it, as did we all.
