Chicken Kiev is one of my first thoughts when making a meal for someone for the first time. It is not that difficult to make, it looks impressive. and it tastes divine. It is best served with mashed potatoes and green beans almondine. This is not the traditional method to make this dish. There will be no pounding or stuffing. Just simple coating. Chicken Kiev is a popular dish of boneless chicken breast pounded and rolled around cold garlic butter with herbs, then breaded and either fried or baked.
