Wonderful, easy, and elegant. I served it with fresh steamed asparagus and a rice pilaf.

I would indeed make this recipe again. It's excellent and should be dealt with as such.

have made a similar recipe for over 30 yrs and it still gets raves. I use bread crumbs instead of the flakes & roll a chunk of monterey jack cheese with the butter in the center of each breast. An outstanding & easy recipe.

I was hoping to cut my piece of chicken and have the butter run out like the chicken kiev you can buy frozen...didn't happen. A little disappointed there but it is a low fat recipe afterall. Otherwise my family really liked this dish. Will probably try some other kiev recipes though.
