I love chicken kievs and this is my favourite recipe for home made kievs. I know you can buy them in a shot but there is something about making your own food at home. It must be all the love that goes into it.

If you don't want to use margerine, then don't. I chose to make these with regular butter, but only because that's all I had in the house. I followed the other instructions perfectly and the chicken came out wonderful. They were easily put togeher and the cooking time was right on. I served them sliced open so you could see the herbs inside. Thank you Ben for a great recipe!

Give me a break! I used the margaraine and I thought it was delicious. I don't know about authentic, but it was just wonderful! Thanks for the recipe.

A true Chicken Kiev NEVER uses anything as profane as margarine, but only butter. Margarine can NEVER impart any of the subtle flavor butter does, so what's the point?
