How To Make chicken kiev

  • 1
    Heat 1 1/2 inches of oil to 360 degrees F in a large, deep skillet.
  • 2
    Pound each chicken breast out (between waxed paper) to 1/4 inch thickness.
  • 3
    Combine chopped garlic and herbs. Cut the cold butter into 4 equal-sized pieces and coat each completely with the herb/garlic mix.
  • 4
    Put flour on 1 plate, beat eggs with a little cold water and put in a pie plate, and put the bread crumbs on a third plate.
  • 5
    Squeeze a lemon over each piece of chicken and season with salt and pepper. Put an herbed butter cube on each piece of chicken and roll up tightly, securing with a toothpick. Roll stuffed breasts first in the flour, then egg, then bread crumbs - coating well.
  • 6
    Fry the chicken bundles for 7-8 minutes on each side or until they reach a deep golden brown all over.
