Chicken Kiev Recipe

A favorite aunt shared this special recipe with me. It makes attractive individual servings fancy enough to be served for company. They have great flavor and were a hit at my "Let It Snow" dinner party. -Lynne Peterson, Salt Lake City, Utah
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + freezing Bake: 35 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon grated onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 envelope (2-3/4 ounces) seasoned chicken coating mix


  • 1. Combine the butter, onion, parsley, garlic powder, tarragon and pepper. Shape mixture into six pencil-thin strips about 2 in. long; place on waxed paper. Freeze until firm, about 30 minutes. Flatten each chicken breast to 1/4 in. Place one butter strip in the center of each chicken breast. Fold long sides over butter; fold ends up and secure with a toothpick. In a bowl, beat egg and milk; place coating mix in another bowl. Dip chicken, then roll in coating mix. Place chicken, seam side down, in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 425° or until the chicken is no longer pink and the juices run clear. Remove toothpicks before serving. Microwave Directions (timing based on a 1100-watt oven): Place chicken in a greased glass pie plate. Microwave on high for 2-1/2 minutes. Turn plate; microwave for 1-2 minutes or until juices run clear. Let stand 5 minutes. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.

"Very tasty. I used boneless thighs and it was very juicy and tender. I didn't have chicken coating mix so I sub seasoned bread crumbs with seasoning salt added. I baked it til it was over 165F internal temp and didn't microwave it."
