Recipe Comments & Reviews

Years ago I purchased a metal recipe box by Land O'Lakes with an original butter-box design. This box included the Country style chicken kiev recipe as posted by David above.. I have made it regularly since then, it is one of my family favorites, simple and delicious. I am surprised it disappeared from the recipe list.
I've made the Original Recipe from the Cookbook since the early 80's Everyone in my family Loves it. I'm waiting for the 3 - 5 minutes now, and then we EAT!!!!!
your original recipe is very different from this one.
2/3 C. land o lakes sweet cream butter 1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 C. fine dry bread crumbs 2 chicken breasts, split ( about 1 1/2 lb.)
2 Tbl. grated parmesan cheese 1/4 C. dry white wine or apple juice
1 tsp. each basil leaves and oregano leaves 1/4 C. chopped green onion
1/2 tsp. garlic salt 1/4 C. chopped parsley

Preheat oven: 375. In heavy 2-Qt. saucepan, melt butter. Meanwhile, on piece of wax paper combine bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, basil, oregano, garlic salt and salt. Dip chicken breasts in melted butter, then roll in crumbs to coat. Place skin side up in ungreased 9" square baking dish. Bake near center of 375 oven for 50 or 60 min. or until golden brown And chicken is tender. Meanwhile, add wine , green onion and parsley to remaining melted butter (about 1/2 C.). When chicken is golden brown, pour butter sauce mixture around and over. Return to oven for 3-5 min. or just until sauce is hot. Serve with sauce spooned over.

YIELD: 4 half breasts.
I have used this recipe ever since I was given the recipe book many years ago. It's quick and easy. I now keep a log of the filling in the freezer for hectic nights. Also, if you don't have the crackers- just lightly cruch corn flake style crumbs and substitute them! You can also add herbs to the filling as your taste (or the occasion) dictate. Chives, chopped parsley, and oregano have all been thrown in there with good results.
