Chicken Kiev is one of those mythical foods, seldom

served at home, or anywhere. We really loved this

alternative to the traditional,  Paleo Chicken Kiev is also

Gluten-Free & Low Carb.  Swapping out coconut

flour for AP wheat & crushed walnuts for panko, are the only

real changes. Still this was a pretty much”fly by the seat of

my pants”cooking which I love.  Measuring my ingredients

didn’t work: I needed a bit more this, a bit less of that.  Look

at the pictures & get the idea.  Play, cook, have fun!

This was only 1 chicken breast which made an ample dinner

for the two of us.  The best compliment, was when my

husband Scott asked if I would make it again soon.
