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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + freezing Bake: 35 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (8 ounces each)
  • 3/4 cup crushed cornflakes
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the butter, chives and garlic. Shape into a 3-in. x 2-in. rectangle. Cover and freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.
  • 2. Flatten each chicken breast to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut the butter mixture into six 1-in. pieces; place one piece in center of each chicken breast. Roll up chicken from a long side; tuck ends under. Secure with toothpicks.
  • 3. In a shallow bowl, combine the cornflakes, parsley and paprika. Place buttermilk in another shallow bowl. Dip the chicken into buttermilk, then coat evenly with cornflake mixture.
  • 4. Place chicken in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish, seam side down. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 35-40 minutes or until no longer pink. Discard toothpicks. Yield: 6 servings.

"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."
