Homemade Chicken Kiev

Cowbridge Kitchen

Technically a Chicken Kiev is filled with Garlic butter and these are more Chicken Cordon bleu as they are filled with Cheese & Ham. But who cares what you want to call them, this homemade Chicken Kievs tastes delicious.

You can experiment with this recipe by changing up the Cheese for Goats Cheese and even substituting the ham for Chorizo or Prosciutto

I like to serve these with Potato Gratin or Homemade Mashed Potatoes.

Homemade Chicken Kiev

The history of the Chicken Kiev is not well documented, and various sources make claims about its origin. But it seems reasonable to assume that it is a Russian recipe.

This recipe is not technically a Kiev, as the deffinnition of a Kiev is stuffed with Garlic Butter, so this is more a Chicken Cordon bleu.

Chicken Kiev or Chicken Kyiv is a dish made of chicken fillet pounded and rolled around cold Garlic Butter.

We have addapted this recipe slightly so as to reproduce a more familiar type of Chicken Kiev, so we have used minced Chicken.
