“Quality chicken stuffed with garlicky butter and crispy bacon, coated in golden breadcrumbs. Delicious! ” #simplechickenkievrecipe #homemadechickenkiev


  • 1/3 cup (75 ml) butter, softened
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp.) Flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 15 ml (1 tbsp.) Lemon juice
  • 4 chicken breast halves, boneless and skinless
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 375 ml (1 1/2 cups) breadcrumbs
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 toothpicks
  • Oil for frying


    1. In a bowl, mix all the ingredients. Shape mixture into a square of about 10 cm (4 inches) on plastic wrap. Cover and freeze on a plate for about 20 minutes or until firm. Cut the butter into four sticks. Refrigerate if to wait.
    2. Preheat the oil in the deep fryer to 170 ° C (325 ° F). Place a grid on a baking sheet.
    3. Using a small, sharp knife, insert the blade into one end of each breast half, cutting the inside to create a large cavity without piercing the flesh. Stick a stick of butter in each cavity. Close by basting with a toothpick to seal. Salt and pepper. Reserve.
    4. Place the flour, eggs and breadcrumbs in three shallow plates.
    5. Dip each breast half in the flour and shake to remove any excess. Dip in the eggs then in the breadcrumbs. Dip a second time in the egg and breadcrumbs.
    6. Fry the breasts for about 14 minutes, two at a time. Drain on the grid. Serve immediately with green beans or a green salad.


It is important to let your diners know that there is a toothpick in the chicken and that melted butter can squirt when cutting the poultry.
