One of the most glorious dishes ever created in the Ukraine, Chicken Kiev is cooked with a rich blend of butter and herbs. Its flavor is amazing, and the meat moist and tender. Just perfect.
- 4 chicken breasts
- 1 Cup fine dry breadcrumbs or cracker meal
- 2 teaspoons parsley, fresh, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons tarragon, fresh, chopped
- 2 teaspoons chives, fresh, chopped
- 2 eggs, well blended
- 3 Tablespoons butter (more as needed
- 3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice; from 1 lemon (more as needed)
- Fill a bowl full of either very fine cracker crumbs (straight Saltines; not anything weird) or very fine dry breadcrumbs.
- Add to this some parsley, chives, garlic powder and just a little tarragon.
- Coat chicken breasts with egg, then in the crumb mixture.
- Melt lots of butter in a heavy pan, moderate heat works best to brown, and cook the chicken without burning it or drying it out.
- Turn pieces frequently (2 to 3 times each side).
- After first side is done and while second side is cooking, sprinkle a little lemon juice on that side.
- Repeat each time you turn the pieces, trying not to get the lemon juice in the butter, just on the chicken; as the butter and lemon juice together make a lot of muss and fuss and noise.
- You will need to add butter once or twice more while cooking. Takes about 15 to 20 minutes to cook altogether.
