Mega Meal Monday: Chicken Kiev
Welcome to Mega Meal Monday!
There are many Chicken Kiev recipes. Most call for flattened chicken breast. Here's my version that is the quickest and easiest, though NOT the neatest!
Boneless, skinless chicken THIGHS
One pat of butter per chicken thigh
Garlic and onion powder
Green onions, diced
Except for the butter, I did not include amounts on the ingredients. The amounts will vary with your taste and the quantity of chicken used. I like to make extra and freeze - or - cook once and eat for two meals. Plan on one Kiev per person.
Grab a muffin tin (or two depending on how many you plan on making. One thigh = one muffin cup) and grease the insides of each tin with cooking spray or oil. I use coconut oil.
Lay each thigh flat, sprinkle with garlic, and onion powder, and green onions. Lay a pat of butter in the center and roll the thigh up.
Place the rolled up chicken seam side down into the muffin tin. You will need to push and tuck it some.
Sprinkle all tops with bread crumbs. Bake at 350 for about 35 minutes or until done.
(This is messy, but yummy!)
To serve, scoop Kievs out from the tins using a slotted spoon. After cooling, they can easily be placed into a ziploc bag and frozen.
Excellent served with gravy. In fact, my kids call these 'chicken meatballs'.
