Low Carb, Paleo & Gluten-free!
Chicken Kiev, or kotleta po kievski as we say in Russian, is something we used to love as children. Imagine chicken breast but dripping in butter and seasoned to perfection. The chicken breast you think you know is a lie! When prepared right, it’s mouthwateringly juicy and moist.
As kids, we wouldn’t get chicken kiev too often, and rarer so, homemade. If one of us was to enjoy it for dinner it usually came prepared in a box from a Russian convenience store. It was good but not as good as restaurants would serve it. One of our favorite Russian eateries, Vanka Vstanka, recently served it for a friend’s birthday and it reignited our love for chicken kiev!
We quickly realized the breading issue could be solved with our go-to trick: just slather the meat in crushed pork rinds – instant breaded chicken. So for our chicken kiev recipe, we used our trusted dredging stations of coconut flour, beaten egg and crushed pork rinds. In that order.
After beating and stuffing the chicken, we simply set the breasts through our stations, fried it up to get a nice golden crust and baked until cooked to perfection. The result was one of the juiciest chicken breasts we’ve ever enjoyed. Better than any store-bought dinner!
We served the chicken kiev on a bed of arugula and had some creamed spinach on the side for a perfect high fat, low carb dinner! We hope you enjoy our Russian recipe as much as we did.
