    diamonds4heather's Note:

    This cheesy Chicken Kiev is to die for! I serve it with broccoli rice au grain, nice crusty french bread, and a green salad. Whenever I go for a visit somewhere or offer to make someone dinner, this is what they ineviatbly request. Kids, husbands, and friends will love it!

    6. 6
      in the center of the chicken breast You must now roll the chicken into little bundles; fold over slightly on both left and right sides while you roll from the bottom of breast to the top.
    7. 7

      These are terrific!! They literally explode with flavor. I put them together this morning and cooked them for super. The cheesy inside, with the crusty outside--oh my, they are so good. I didn't alter this recipe at all. It stands on it's own. This one will definitly be a repeat! Thanks, Heather!!

      I was so dissapointed when I made this. There was way too much oregano. If I had put two tablespoons of garlic salt the recipe called for it would have been totally uneatable. I put two teaspoons instead,and one would have been enough. Next time I will use my own judgement. Mary Ann Davis

      I made this recipe twice and enjoyed it incredibly. Extremely flavourful; a taste explosion in every mouthful. I will definitely make this again!
