Chicken Kiev Cutlets Recipe

This is one of recipes of ukrainian cuisine, after all it is named after capital of Ukraine – Kiev / Kyiv, but it is pretty popular through rest of former USSR countries.

Chicken Kiev is no ordinary recipe, but definitely one worth time spent: tender chicken meat folded around herb butter, covered in breadcrumbs and egg batter and cooked.

The trick is to fold meat and coat cutlets in batter in a way that herb butter doesn’t leak through holes while deep frying.

  10. Warm up deep pot with vegetable oil over moderate heat (if you use bigger pot, you may be able to fry all three cutlets at once, but you will also need more oil to fry them; if you use smaller pot, fry cutlet one by one). Add cutlets in:
