How to Cook Chicken ala Kiev

  • Remove skin of chicken breast. Separate meat from the bone. With one chicken breast you can make 2 pieces of "Ala Kiev".
  • Place chicken breast fillet between 2 pieces of wax paper. Pound until the meat is spread thinly. You may use the flat side of knife in pounding.
  • Rub the meat with minced garlic. Combine salt, MSG, and pepper. Sprinkle on the meat.
  • Cut frozen butter into sticks, 3/4 inch thick by 2 1/2 inch length. Place 1 piece in the middle of the meat, sprinkle with parsley and roll like a drumstick.
  • Be sure the butter is well enveloped in the meat or it will ooze out while frying. Secure with a toothpick.
  • Cover thoroughly with flour, dip in beaten egg and roll on bread crumbs. Place in refrigerator for 1 hour to set the coating.
  • Deep fry for 5 minutes, remove the toothpicks and serve immediately. You can also use quick melt cheese to stuff in your chicken ala kiev.
