What is a chicken Kiev?

Some of you may be wondering what a chicken Kiev is so here is a simple explanation. A chicken Kiev is a chicken breast that has been flattened (usually using a rolling pin or a wooden mallet). The breast is then rolled around a filling, usually either garlic butter or a melted cheese and then it is covered with breadcrumbs and then cooked.

Chicken Kiev is really easy to make and is really quite tasty. You can serve this chicken dish with chips or potatoes and vegetables or even serve it with a salad. Chicken Kiev is an excellent dish to serve to children and adults.

I hope you enjoy the following recipe and find it easy to follow.

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 50 min
Yields: Seves 4 people


  • 1 Clove Garlic
  • 1 tbsp Parsley, Finely chopped
  • 4oz Salted Butter
  • Pinch of Salt and Pepper
  • 4 Chicken Breasts, Boned
  • 1 Large Egg, Beaten
  • 1 Packet Golden Breadcrumbs

How to make chicken Kiev

  1. Pre-heat an oven to Gas Mark 6/ 200*C. Crush the clove of garlic with a garlic crusher and place it in a large bowl with the parsley, butter and the salt and pepper. Mix them all together until well combined then chill in a fridge until firm.
  2. Flatten each of the chicken breasts with a rolling pin or a wooden mallet
  3. Equally divide the butter mixture and roll into 4 sausage shapes and place one on top of each of the chicken breasts
  4. Wrap each of the chicken breasts round the butter mixture to form a tight parcel (it must be tight so that the parcel doesn't come apart. Stick a cocktail into the parcels to hold them tight if need be.
  5. Carefully dip each of the chicken breasts into the beaten egg and then into the breadcrumbs in order to coat the parcels in breadcrumbs. Do this twice to each of the parcels to make sure that they are completely coated in crumbs.
  6. Place the breaded parcels onto a baking tray. Remove the cocktail sticks and place the chicken into the middle of the oven for 30 minutes or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked. (The best way to check that the chicken is cooked through is to cut one open and check that there is not pink left in the chicken)

      I love chicken Kiev but I normally sprinkle the flattened chicken with chives and wrap it around a cold piece of butter.
