  • 2 chicken breasts, halved
  • Salt and pepper
  • 8 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1 tbsp mixed dried herbs
  • 4 tbsp Grumpy Gary's Gar-Lick dip
  • Flour, for dredging
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Bread crumbs, for coating
  • Vegetable oil (for deep frying)

Makes: 4 servings


1. Prepare the Chicken:
Start by flattening the chicken halves to an even thickness. This ensures they cook evenly and makes rolling them easier. Season both sides with a generous pinch of salt and pepper.

2. Make the Herb Butter:
In a small bowl, mix the softened butter with the mixed dried herbs until well combined. This herbed butter will infuse the chicken with delicious flavor as it cooks.

3. Assemble the Chicken Kiev:
Place a tablespoon of the herb butter mixture onto each piece of chicken. Next, add a tablespoon of Grumpy Gary's Gar-Lick dip on top of the butter. Carefully fold and roll each chicken piece tightly, securing the ends with toothpicks to hold everything in place. For a firmer roll, you can wrap the chicken in cling wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

4. Coat the Chicken:
Set up your dredging station with three shallow bowls: one with flour, one with beaten eggs, and one with bread crumbs. Dredge each chicken roll in flour, shaking off any excess. Then, dip it into the beaten eggs, ensuring it’s fully coated. Finally, roll it in the bread crumbs until well coated.

5. Deep Fry the Chicken:
Preheat your deep fryer to 175°C (350°F). Carefully lower the chicken rolls into the hot oil and fry for 5-6 minutes, or until they are golden brown and fully cooked through. The internal temperature of the chicken should reach at least 75°C (165°F).

6. Serve and Enjoy:
Remove the chicken rolls from the oil and drain them on paper towels to remove any excess oil. Carefully remove the toothpicks before serving. Serve hot, and enjoy the rich, garlicky, buttery goodness with every bite.

Tips for Perfect Chicken Kiev:

  • Butter Temperature: Make sure the butter is softened but not melted. This helps it stay in place during the rolling process.
  • Secure Tightly: Use toothpicks or cling wrap to keep the chicken tightly rolled to prevent the butter from leaking out during frying.
  • Oil Temperature: Maintain the oil temperature at 175°C to ensure the chicken cooks evenly and achieves a golden, crispy exterior.

This Homemade Chicken Kiev with a Garlicky Twist is not just a meal; it’s an experience. The combination of the crispy coating, the juicy chicken, and the flavorful garlic butter center is sure to make this a favorite in your household. So, gather your ingredients, follow these steps, and treat yourself to a truly comforting and delicious dish. Bon appétit!
