Basic Chicken Kiev

8 servings

4 boned, skinned chicken breasts
1 cup unsalted butter
2 tablespoons minced parsley
2 tablespoons finely snipped chives
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
2 cups flour
2 beaten eggs
2 cups dry breadcrumbs
vegetable oil, for frying


Cut each chicken breast in 1/2 and pound the pieces between sheets of plastic wrap till they are 1/4 inch thick. Blend the parsley, chives, salt and pepper, set aside. Divide the butter into 8 pieces, roll each piece in herb mixture. Place a butter ball in the center of each chicken piece and roll each one up in such a way that the butter is completely enclosed. Secure the rolls with a toothpick. Dust the rolls with flour, dip them in the beaten egg, and roll them in the bread crumbs. Deep-fry the chicken in medium-hot oil till golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. Serve with SHOESTRING POTATOES
