Last weekend we decided to have a go at making chicken kievs. We are massive kiev lovers and have tried them from just about everywhere (our favourite are from Asda incase you wondered) so we thought it would be good to have a go at homemade ones. Plus we like to try out new recipes as often as we can.
We used a recipe from the BBC Food website (this one). The good thing about this recipe is that we already had a lot of the ingredients knocking around so we only had to buy a few things, one being chicken breasts. We bought organic, slightly more expensive ones hoping that they would be big and chunky - perfect for stuffing with our kiev mixture. Unfortunately they were a little flat, so if we made them again we would visit a butchers to get chicken breasts perfect for stuffing.
They turned out really well and were extremely tasty! They weren't too difficult to make and you can serve them with pretty much anything you like. We went for diced potatoes in a tomato-ey sauce and asparagus which Jonathan pan-fried in a bit of butter (yes all of those potatoes were for just the two of us...)
Our perfect Saturday tea was topped off with a good film, a cuddle on the sofa, a glass (or two) of Sangria and a huge cream bun. Lovely!
Have you tried a new recipe lately?
