1/2 Photos of James Beard's Chicken Kiev
I've had this recipe for probably 20 years. We always let the kids pick dinner for their birthdays and all 5 of them pick this every year. I got this recipe out of one of James Beard's cookbooks and it is fantastic. Time does not reflect freezing time for the butter.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Combine butter, garlic, chives, parsley, salt, rosemary, and pepper. Blend well. Roll into a 3/4-inch diameter log in waxed paper. Freeze until very hard.
- 2Blend egg and water. Pound each breast to 1/4-inch thick. Cut butter into 4 pieces. Place a piece of the butter in the chicken. Roll the chicken around the butter and skewer with toothpicks to keep closed.
- 3Dip chicken in flour, egg mixture and then in flour.
- 4Fry about 15 minutes in the hot vegetable oil. Turn occasionally. Drain on paper towels.
