Chicken Kiev Recipe: Easy Homemade Kiev Chicken Recipe. These chicken Kiev recipes are from an old Ukrainian grandmother who was born in Russia and immigrated to the United States in the early 1900’s. She was a great cook and taught her family and friends how to make these chicken Kievs. My mom’s family is from Philadelphia. I have tried to make these chicken Kievs with a few different recipes, but this one is the closest to the original. All of them turn out great!

Kiev chicken is one of my favorite chicken dishes because each chicken breast is crispy on the surface and soft on the inside, with packed butter and spinach. Chicken Kiev takes just 15 minutes to prepare and is an excellent evening snack for your family.


So, what exactly is Chicken Kiev?

Chicken Kiev is very popular in the Post-Soviet republics and many other former Eastern Bloc nations, as well as in the English-speaking world. This meal consists of a pounded and filled chicken fillet, which is then covered in bread crumbs and eggs before being fried or baked (totally your choice).


In Russian, Ukrainian, and Polish cuisines, the dish of stuffed chicken breast is known as côtelette de volaille. Because fillets are frequently referred to as suprêmes in professional cooking, the dish is also known as suprême de volaille à la Kiev.

This dish serves 3-4 people comfortably. If you like chicken breast dishes, I’m certain you’ll enjoy this simple chicken kiev recipe as well. Each delicate chicken breast is filled with a delectable creamy buttery sauce. This is the greatest recipe I’ve ever had, and my grandma used to make it for me when I was a child. Actually, this chicken Kiev may be prepared with just a few ingredients, and if you don’t have spinach on hand, parsley leaves can be substituted.


I strongly suggest eating this dish on the same day since it will lose its crispiness and flavor if stored in the fridge. You won’t get that wonderful savory taste even if you fried it again, believe me. So, if you’ve already filled your chicken breast pieces but don’t want to fry them right now, simply keep the uncooked stuffed breast in the fridge as a meal prep for tomorrow.

What’s a good side dish to go with Chicken Kiev?

Actually, you may eat it as soon as it’s finished. However, if you want to make it a heavier dinner, serve it with mashed potatoes, fresh greens, or chips, and watch your favorite Netflix program while eating it.


Helpful Hints for the Chicken Kiev Recipe

  • If you use too thick chicken breasts, they won’t cook all the way through. You won’t be able to fill the butter mixture if the skin is too thin.
  • Cut the chicken pocket carefully because if there is a leak, the filled substance may spill out during the frying process, ruining the whole dish. (Learn how to stuff a chicken breast by making a pocket)
  • If you accidentally cut the pockets too deep and there’s a risk of leaking, use a toothpick to close the gaps.
  • If you want the chicken breasts to be extra crispy, twice bread them.
  • Stuff the chicken with fresh spinach or parsley. With these two components, it simply tastes so much better.

To make a mixture

    • 1/4 cup butter, gently softened
    • 2 tbsp minced parsley
    • 2 minced garlic cloves
    • 2 big shallots, minced
    • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

For chicken, prepare as follows:

    • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
    • 2 beaten eggs
    • 1 tablespoon of butter
    • 1 cup flour made from brown rice
    • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Stuffing Ingredients

  • 2 cups spinach (baby)
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 1 tablespoon of butter


  1. Pounded chicken breast pieces to a thickness of approximately 1/4 inch. On a dish, place the pounded chicken. Season the chicken with salt and pepper before serving.
  2. Heat a small pan over medium heat, add olive oil, and sauté shallots and garlic until gently browned. Remove them and set them aside to cool.
  3. Now add the butter to the sautéed shallots and garlic, along with the chopped parsley, and mash everything together with a fork until it’s fully combined.
  4. Reheat the skillet and add 1 tsp butter, which should melt over medium heat before adding the spinach. Stir for a few minutes, until the spinach is just wilted.
  5. Prepare two bowls, one with beaten eggs and the other with brown rice flour.
  6. Make a pocket in each chicken breast and fill half with the butter mixture and half with the spinach mixture. Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts.
  7. Dip the pieces in the egg mixture first, then the flour mixture until they are fully coated. This should be done for all of the components.
  8. Place the chicken pieces straight into the olive oil in a big pan over medium heat and cook for 5-6 minutes each side until golden brown. Transfer them to the paper towel plate after they’ve finished cooking.
  9. Serve immediately with fresh parsley as a garnish.
