Today I’m bringing you two wonderful things. My recipe for our favourite Chicken Kiev and the chance to win a Garlic Crusher from Oliver’s Kitchen.
The competition prize is being provided from Oliver’s Kitchen and you can enter at the end of this post. It’s the best Garlic crusher I’ve ever had, as soon as I took it from the box I knew it was built to last. It’s heavy, smart and does the job beautifully.
You can win one of these too in my latest competition. It’s currently out of stock on the website but you can buy one on Amazon for £14.99.
Chicken Kiev Recipe
My favourite garlic based recipe is Chicken Kiev and I like to make it at home. It’s a lot easier than you think.
- 4 Chicken breasts with skin removed
For the garlic herb butter
- 3-4 tbsp freshly chopped flat leaf parsley
- 3-4 tbsp freshly chopped chives
- 115g soft butter
- 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
- salt and pepper
For the Kiev coating
- 50g/2oz plain flour
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 175g/6oz natural breadcrumbs
- oil for frying
First make the garlic butter filling. Add the herbs to the butter along with the garlic and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Mix together with a fork.
Divide the butter into four and using cold hands (run them under the cold tap) roll them into bullet shapes. Wrap in cling film and place in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Take your chicken breast and lifting the fillet part up, cut through about two thirds of the breast.
Unwrap your butter bullets and place them inside your chicken breast, pulling your fillet part down to fully seal the butter.
Put a pan of oil on to warm up.
Beat the 4 eggs up in a bowl. fill another bowl with the flour and a third bowl with the bread crumbs.
Take each breast and place in the flour bowl until coated, then place in the egg until coated and finally in the breadcrumbs. Make sure each piece is completely covered.
Gently put the chicken into the fat until golden then remove and place on a baking tray.
Pop into the oven on 170 degrees for a further 15 minutes (keep an eye on them and take them out if they start to leak.) Let them rest.
We serve our chicken kievs with pasta, when you cut open the chicken the garlic, herb butter sauce dribbles all over the pasta. You can also serve them with rice or potatoes.
What do you serve your Chicken Kievs with?
