I have very fond memories of Chicken Kiev from my childhood.
I remember my mother sewing up chicken breasts with needle and thread for dinner parties. Not being much cop at sewing, nor having the patience required to thread a needle - I can assure you, my recipe is a lot less faff! This recipe involves wrapping flattened chicken around a large ball of cold herby butter. The shape and the butter filling is held inside by freezing the breasts prior to bread crumbing and cooking.
Every time I cut into a chicken Kiev, the sense of anticipation whether the garlic butter will ooze out is almost unbearable.
Fresh, light, zingy and tasty - a wonderful through-back to an 1970’s favourite.
I served this with oven chips and some very lightly cooked julienned seasonal vegetables.
