Best Chicken Kiev Recipe

From holiday dinners to potluck suppers, this is one of my favorite meals. Folks love the mildly seasoned chicken roll-ups. —Karin Erickson, Burney, California

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (8 ounces each)
  • 3/4 cup crushed cornflakes
