Chicken Kiev

I tried something new and different last night for dinner. The result was pretty good, so I thought I'd share it.

2 half chicken breasts
1/4 cup butter, softened
garlic powder, salt, pepper, thyme, and parsley (to taste)
flour
1 egg, beaten with 1 T. water
cracker crumbs

Pound chicken flat, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Mix butter with spices. Flatten in a long, narrow strip between pieces of waxed paper and freeze for 30 minutes.


Cut chicken in half (so you have four pieces). Place frozen butter/spices on center of each chicken piece. Roll chicken around butter and secure with a toothpick. Roll in flour, dip in egg mixture, and roll in cracker crumbs.









Fry in hot skillet until brown on all sides - about 8 to 10 minutes.












Enjoy!













The original recipe says to roll up the entire half breast, but I found that if you do that, the outside is overcooked before the inside is done. So I think using less chicken in each roll would work better.

Also, the original recipe gives amounts for the spices, and calls for rosemary. I sort of ignored that part and put in what I thought would taste good. :)
