MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 28, 2014

OMG! This recipe was absolutely amazing. It cooked perfectly. I loved that it was a microwaveable recipe, because it's perfect for warm days. My hubby loves kiev, and I hate the freezer pre-made ones. I grow chives, and this was a good use of them. The crust was surprisingly crispy, which I didn't expect. I already have made this twice, and can't wait to make it for guests! LOVE LOVE LOVE.

I always have a difficult time getting the butter sauce to stay inside the chicken whenever I make Chicken Kiev. It always leaks out, eventhough I fold the sides in! I baked it in the oven instead as I'm not big on how microwaves cook. I will try it again!

MY REVIEW

The recipe is good but something about cooking meat in the microwave doesn't sound appealing so I baked it.
