Gluten Free chicken Kiev

There is nothing more satisfying than cutting into a freshly cooked gluten free chicken Kiev and seeing the yummy garlic butter oozing out all over the plate. Keeping the butter inside your Kiev can also be very tricky! Don’t worry if don’t manage to get the butter to stay inside the chicken Kiev on your first attempt.

The purpose of cooking these Kiev’s from scratch is creating a healthy gluten free alternative to the normal shop bought, full of gluten, frozen ones. on the plus side the more you make this dish the more you can practice your technique.

If you prefer a creamier garlic chicken Kiev, you could always substitute the butter in our recipe for cream cheese, we love them both ways but the creamier version is definitely a winner for us.

serving suggestion: these garlic Kiev’s go perfectly with boiled new potatoes, garden peas and broccoli, or you can serve them with a simple green salad, savoury vegetable rice or even mash potatoes and mushy peas.
