Chicken Kiev

chicken kiev

I know that the internet is full of chicken recipes, and chicken Kiev as well but for CookBlook this is the first Chicken Kiev and is as good, maybe even better then much more others you will find.
The chicken is as it should be: crispy on the outside due to the bread crumbs and moist and tender in the inside due to the filling based on a buttery herb composition which is just wonderful. The garlic really gives everything a great flavor.

I love this kind of recipes that does not required much ingredients and the process is simple and very well explained by the other.
Read the following recipe and maybe you will want to try it like I did.
