Chef John's Chicken Kiev

See how to make impressive chicken Kiev. True, it’s about as Russian and/or Ukrainian as a corn dog. But it's undeniably delicious and impressive, no matter what city or cuisine it’s meant to represent. You'll start with the incredibly flavorful garlic and Italian parsley butter that’s hidden inside the rolled, breaded chicken breasts. Is it worky? A little. But it’s not difficult. And the additional effort is so worth it. Moist and tender inside, a little crispy-crunchy outside, with that secret garlic-butter center, it cannot fail to impress. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Chicken Kiev. It’s a terrific meal for anniversary or Valentine’s Day dinners.

This is an amazing recipe! Really works and I followed every step and the trick to rest it really turned out a perfectly cooked chicken - beautifully cooked - thank you so much Chef John!

This " Chef " , is as much of a chef as he is " historian " . Someone who doesn't know that " Chicken Kiev " is actually ; CAPON Kyiv and is indeed an old UKRAINIAN dish , has no business calling himself a " chef " ! And someone who STILL doesn't know the difference between Ukrainian and Russian , is simply an ignoramus ,who should refrain from making comments that prove it !
