What is Chicken Kiev?
Chicken Kiev is particularly popular in the Post-Soviet states and several other countries of the former Eastern Bloc, and in the English-speaking world. This dish is made of chicken fillet pounded and stuffed with butter, then coated with bread crumbs and eggs and either it is fried or baked (totally your choice).
In general, the dish of stuffed chicken breast is also known côtelette de volaille in Russian, Ukrainian, and Polish cuisines. The dish is also named suprême de volaille à la Kiev because fillets are often referred to as suprêmes in professional cookery.
This recipe can easily serve 3-4 people. If you love to eat chicken breast recipes then I am sure that you will love this easy chicken kiev recipe as well. Each tender chicken breast is stuffed with a rich buttery sauce which tastes delicious. This recipe is the all-time best even when i was a kid my grandmother used to cook it. Actually, this chicken Kiev can be made with just a few ingredients even if you don’t have spinach in your pantry you can omit that and use parsley leaves instead.
I personally recommend eating this recipe on the very same day because you will not get that same taste or crispiness if your store it in your fridge. Believe me, even if you fry it again you will not get that delicious flavorful taste.
So if you have already stuffed your chicken breast pieces that don’t fry them immediately, just store that uncooked stuffed breast in the fridge and you can use it as a meal prep for later tomorrow.

Chicken Kiev Recipe Helpful Tips
- Don’t use too thick chicken breasts because it won’t cook all the way. Even if you use too thin skin then you won’t be able to stuff the butter mixture.
- Cut the chicken pocket very careful because if there’s a leak from the pocket the stuffed mixture may come out during frying which will totally mess up your entire recipe. (learn how to make a pocket in chicken breast for stuffing)
- If you have mistakenly cut the pockets very deep and there’s a chance for the leakage then use a toothpick to seal the openings.
- If you want extra crispiness, make sure to double bread the chicken breasts.
- Use fresh spinach or parsley to stuff the chicken. It just tastes way better with these two ingredients.
