How to cook Chicken Kiev with photos

There are even rules for eating Chicken Kiev:

  • Before you eat it, pierce it with a fork to release the butter.
  • To prevent butter from splashing outside the plate, pierce the cutlet closer to the bone. Earlier, foreigners who were not familiar with Chicken Kiev were given a special brochure on how to use this dish so as not to accidentally get burned with hot butter.
  • The oil should flow out to the side dish, after this, the cutlet should be eaten as usual.
  • Since the bone is not fixed, do not hold the patty with the bone, the cutlet may fall.

What to serve with Chicken Kiev

  1. So, let’s start by rinsing the potatoes thoroughly and then cook until ready (unpeeled).
  2. After we carefully drain the water and let potatoes cool slightly (when we add dressing, sauce or butter to potatoes, the meal should remain warm).
  3. At this time, we begin cooking dressing for potatoes. To do this, wash the parsley and dry it from water (to speed up the process, parsley can be laid out on a paper towel or napkin). Now let us draw your attention to the fact that you need only its leaves. Therefore, peel parsley, and then finely chop.
  4. Peel the garlic, flatten it with a knife, and then finely chop.
  5. Rinse the lemon thoroughly and remove the zest from it (we rub only the yellow part, without white, on a fine grater). Squeeze lemon juice in a separate container.
  6. Now add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the lemon juice and whisk them lightly with a whisk. Next, add garlic and parsley, salt and pepper to taste. All mix well.
  7. Slightly cooled potatoes are peeled and then cut into medium slices. Now we take some saucepan (or any other dish with a lid), put chopped potatoes in it, fill it with the prepared dressing, close the lid and shake it several times. Try the potatoes, it might need some extra salt.
