It can be a fiddly business getting that garlic butter inside a chicken breast. Luckily our version is broken down into two parts: a golden breaded chicken escalope and a homemade garlic butter. Shallow fried and served with potato and broccoli mash. Win!

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Cheaty Chicken Kiev

Cut all the potatoes to roughly equal size (approx. 4cm chunks)

Add the potatoes and salt (optional) to a large pot of cold water and bring to the boil 

Boil for 15 min or until you can pierce them easily with a fork

2 Cheaty Chicken Kiev

Meanwhile, place your hand flat onto each chicken breast fillet and slice in half as if you were cutting a burger bun, so you are left with two thinner pieces

3 Cheaty Chicken Kiev

Crack the egg[s] into a shallow bowl and beat well with a fork

Add 3 tbsp [6 tbsp] flour to a plate and season generously with salt and pepper

On a second plate, add the panko breadcrumbs

4 Cheaty Chicken Kiev

Coat each piece of chicken in the seasoned flour, tapping off any excess

Dip it in the egg and coat well

Roll it in the panko breadcrumbs and make sure it is evenly coated

Repeat with the rest of the chicken and set aside – these are your chicken escalopes

5 Cheaty Chicken Kiev

Cut the broccoli into florets (including the stalk)

Add the broccoli to the potato pot, and boil for a further 5 min 

6 Cheaty Chicken Kiev

Peel and roughly chop (or grate) the garlic

Bash the garlic with 1/2 tsp [1 tsp] salt in a pestle & mortar until you have a smooth paste

Melt 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] butter in a pot with the garlic paste

Once the butter has started to foam, remove the pot from the heat and set aside – this is your garlic butter

7 Cheaty Chicken Kiev

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with 1-2 tbsp vegetable oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the chicken escalopes and cook for 5 min on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through

Transfer them to a piece of kitchen towel

Season with salt and pepper – this is your breadcrumbed chicken
