I learned this dish from my step mom. When I got married I made it for my wife once and she went crazy for it. It’s her absolute favorite dish. If I ever ask her what I can make this is always her answer. I love the flavor of the wine in the chicken. She is particularly fond of Moscato which I tried one and is now my go to wine choice for this dish.
Tips For Making The Perfect Chicken Kiev
I prefer to use Progresso Italian Bread Crumbs and Polly-O whole mozzarella. As stated above Mosato is the ideal wine.
Drawbacks To Preparing Chicken Kiev
This is not a quick dish. It takes a lot of prep time and cooking time is one hour. Pounding chicken breasts thin is one of the least fun tasks in the kitchen. The love this dish requires is worth the effort because it is one of the most delicious meals you will ever experience. I swear by the flavor if you love chicken and wine this is a winner. I personally don’t love chicken and this is one of my favorites which is why it’s the first recipe I picked to post. Trust me it’s out of this galaxy.Print
