I like Chef flower left out the old bay seasoning for dietary reasons (I do have it in my pantry due to recipe swap) but we really didn't like the butter mix and found it very salty. Also I am a bit of lazy cook and I just cut a pocket in the chicken breast and stuffed the butter in and crumbed as per recipe (though did not have Italian seasoning and used Tuscan) and baked (the chicken was on a baking paper lined tray and sprayed with canola oil) at 175C for 45 minutes and the end result was moist and crispy chicken, thank you Heather E, made for ZAAR Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.
We like Chicken Kiev and this recipe was not a let down. I followed the recipe as written but I left out the old bay seasoning as I can't find it in Australia. Thank Healther E for a delicious recipe.
